Information about the role of Frimley Health Foundation Trust Governor

Our Council of Governors is made up of local people who have the important job of holding the Trust’s board of directors to account. They represent the interests of patients, the local community and Trust members.

You can become a member of the Frimley Health Council of Governors by standing for election as either a Staff Governor if you are employed by the Trust, as a Public Governor if you are a member of the Trust, or as Stakeholder Governor if you have been appointed by one of the Trust’s partner organisations.

Members of staff automatically become members of the Trust upon employment. Members of the public considering standing as a Public Governor must become members of the Trust first in order to stand for election. Only members of the Trust may vote in any election to the Council of Governors.

The Frimley Health catchment area is divided into different geographic constituencies and depending on the size of the constituency there may be one or two Public Governors per constituency. Elections are held annually on a staggered basis meaning that not all of the seats become eligible for election at the same time. The term of office for a Governor is three years.
