Council of Governors

Oxford University Hospitals became an NHS Foundation Trust on 1 October 2015.

As a Foundation Trust, we have a Council of Governors which is composed of governors elected by public and staff members as well as appointed representatives from local organisations that we work with. The Trust is accountable through our membership and Council of Governors to our local communities.

Governors hold the Trust's Board of Directors to account, and appoint the Non-executive Directors of the Trust.

Details of how our Council of Governors is formed and how it will work are available in our Constitution (pdf)
