Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust has announced the results for governors representing Bradford South, Bradford West, Keighley and Shipley constituencies, alongside two staff governors, following its recent elections.
This follows Trust members voting for prospective candidates to best represent the views of local people in decisions about Trust services on its council of governors.
The successful candidates are, for Bradford East, Michael Frazer, Michaela Worthington-Gill and Mufeed Ansari; for Bradford West, Anne Graham, Sughra Nazir and Katie Massey; for Bradford South, Darren Beever; and for Keighley, Anne Scarborough. They join governors who are already in post including Sidney Brown who continues as governor for Shipley for a second term, following his re-election.
The Trust has also been running elections for two staff governors. Newly appointed Roberto Giedrojt from the Trust’s estates’ team, joins existing staff governors, with health visitor Pamela Shaw, who was elected for a second term, to represent the views of 3,000 staff across Care Trust services.
The new governors will start their induction this month (May), including meeting members of the Trust Board.
Alongside their council of governor roles, the governors will also be involved in appointing any new non-executive directors, including the chair, and agreeing levels of remuneration.
The newly appointed governors’ terms of office will end in April 2024.
Paul Hogg, the Trust’s director of corporate affairs, said: “We’d like to thank everyone who showed an interest in becoming a governor and all those who voted. Our governors are a vital link to our local communities and ensure that we reflect the views of both the public and staff in everything that we do.
“I’d like to congratulate the successful candidates who are joining the Trust as public governors and I look forward to working with them. I’d also like to thank those governors who have just stepped down after completing their term, for their valued contributions and commitment whilst they’ve been with us.”
