Lead governor Jo Cox said: “Being a governor is a very rewarding role helping to ensure that our trust is rooted in its rich and diverse community and responds to community needs.

“If you are aged 16 years and over and passionate about your NHS, then please put yourself forward as a governor.”

RDaSH chair Kathryn Lavery added: “There are no specific qualifications required to become a governor, other than a genuine enthusiasm to make a difference and a passion for doing things better.”People wanting to know more can join two online briefing sessions on Microsoft Teams on Monday, September 25 at 1 to 2pm, and on Tuesday, September 26 from 4 to 5pm.
