Governor Elections

Interested in becoming a Governor?

This is your opportunity to make a difference. As part of the role, you will: 

  • Represent the interests of the Trust’s members
  • Learn about the hospital's services
  • Undertake training and development to support you in the role
  • Represent your community and help the voice of staff, patients and the public to be heard by the Trust
  • Hold the Non-Executive Directors to account for the performance of the Trust.

Members can apply to become a governor of the constituency in which they reside (Medway, Swale or Rest of England).

Governors are elected for a term of three years, and can stand for re-election once (giving a total length of service of six years).

They are asked to commit eight to ten hours a month to their role.

Governors are expected to adhere to the Trust’s Code of Conduct and attend meetings of the Council of Governors which take place four times a year (these meetings are currently held virtually via MS Teams).

Governors are also expected to attend the Annual General Meeting and any other meetings identified by the Council.
