Have your say

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is looking for two public governors from the Berwick constituency.

The role of a public governor is to represent the views of local people and help build links between Northumbria Healthcare and the many communities it serves.

Brian Flood, chairman of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: “As a foundation trust, we have elected public governors who work closely with us to plan local services and respond to the needs and wishes of our local communities.

“Our public governors are the voice of local people and play an important role in helping shape the delivery of health services across Northumberland and North Tyneside.

“Becoming a governor is local people’s opportunity to have a say on local healthcare and give their views to help us develop our priorities. We’re looking for 15 people across our patch who have a passion for healthcare to get involved.

“I would urge anyone who wants to find out more about Northumbria Healthcare, and the important role they could play as a public governor, to get in touch with our foundation team for an informal chat on 0191 203 1296.”

People must be a member of the trust before they can put themselves forward as a candidate to become a public governor. This can be done by completing an online application form at www.northumbria.nhs.uk/members or calling 0191 203 1296.
