Council of Governors elections 2018

Have your say – become a governor

Now is your chance to make your voice heard and have your say.

At Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, the views of our patients, local residents and staff are vital to make sure that our services meet the needs of our communities now and in the future. Our Council of Governors provides the Trust membership and wider communities they represent with a voice in shaping the services we deliver.

This spring, Council of Governors elections are to be held in the following constituencies:

  • patient – 5 seats
  • public – 6 seats
  • staff (clinical) – 3 seats.

Nominations are now open and will close at 5pm on Friday 4 May.

If you are a member, we will be sending you information about how to stand for election via email or in the post over the next few days.

If you are not yet a member and/or would like to stand to become a governor please complete our online membership form or contact our Membership Office at or 020 7188 7346.

To stand as governor or vote you must be 18 years or older and be a member of the Trust in the constituency you wish to represent.

We hope all members will vote in the elections when voting opens on 22 May.

Voting will close on 15 June and the results will be announced shortly afterwards.

Governor quote

'I'm incredibly proud to have been associated with an organisation such as Guy's and St Thomas'. As a patient governor I felt I was able to bring a different view to many discussions and ensure that the needs of the local community were taken into account.'
