Members of Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust are being urged to cast their vote to decide who will represent their views as a public governor at the Trust.
Governors play an important role in the organisation’s work, representing the views of local people and ensure that these are considered when the Board is making key decisions, such as appointing senior level roles like the Trust chair and non-executive directors.
All the Care Trust’s members have now received details by post and need to vote by post or online by 5.00pm on Thursday 29 April to elect their local representatives across five constituencies: three each in Bradford East and Bradford West, and one each in Bradford South, Keighley and Shipley.
Once the votes are in and the results have been confirmed, the newly appointed Governors will start their three-year term of office in May 2021.
The Trust’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Paul Hogg, said: “Nominations have come from a broad range of people who would all bring different skills and experience to the role, and make a valuable contribution to the Trust. We’d encourage every Trust member to vote for the candidate that they believe will do the best job of representing their local community.”
Staff across the Trust’s clinical and non-clinical teams are also being invited to vote for their preferred staff governor candidates.
