Chance to quiz Rotherham Hospital governors

PATIENTS and residents will have the chance to quiz hospital governors next week.

Members of the public are being invited along to speak to Rotherham Hospital’s governors at the next Governors’ Surgery on Wednesday from 9am to 11am and 3pm to 5pm in the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital and the reception area of Rotherham Community Health Centre on Greasborough Road.

Diabetes clinical nurse specialist and governor, Fiona Smith, said: “It is important for me to meet with members of the public and colleagues at the trust, as I am in a position to give the board of directors' insight into how it feels to receive care, or give care at a grass roots level.

“Issues that can be seen as trivial to some can have a big impact on how the Trust is viewed.

“My role as staff governor allows me to bring any concerns to the attention of the board in an unbiased way via the work of the Council of Governors.

“It also allows me to raise awareness of good practice for recognition by the board of directors, which could otherwise go unnoticed.”

May’s board of directors meeting at Rotherham Hospital on May 26 at 9.30am is also open to the public.

The meeting will be held in the boardroom on the General Management Corridor on Level D.
