Nominations for the next round of Governors elections now open

If you would like to join our Council of Governors then you’ll be interested to learn that we are currently seeking Governors for the following areas:

  • 1 Public Birmingham and Solihull
  • 2 Public The Black Country
  • 2 Public Rest of West Midlands
  • 1 BCH Carer
  • 1 Staff Nursing
  • 1 Staff Midwife

Our Governors represent our patients, staff, partner organisations and the public and meet four times a year to discuss the business of our hospital to help to shape plans and ensure that the needs of our children, women and families and our staff are fully considered.

Becoming Governor is a great opportunity for you to represent the views of local people, patients or your colleagues. No special skills are needed - the great thing about the Council of Governors is the diverse range of experience, skills and expertise it brings.  The important thing is to have a passion for representing the interests of people who use or work in the NHS and to be committed to our values which are Ambitious, Brave and Compassionate.

We’d like you to commit around three hours every month to the position, mainly in the evening, and be available to attend four formal council meetings a year. No experience is necessary - full support, guidance and training is given by our Company Secretary team. For more information on what the Council of Governors do, including a summary of the main responsibilities, take a look at the attached information.

Nominations are open until Wednesday 7 November.
