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.

The governors play a valuable role by holding our Non-executive Directors to account, ensuring that the interests of the Trust's members are taken into account and helping to shape our plans for the future.

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

To contact a governor please email
