Council of Governors election 2022

We were delighted with the response from our members to our call for nominations for our governor vacancies.

Thank you to those members who nominated themselves to stand for election and those members that took the time to vote.

Voting has now finished. If you would like a copy of the Declaration of Results for your constituency, please email

Due to the pandemic, elections were deferred from the summer of 2021 to spring 2022.
Turnout figures are slightly lower than the previous two elections.

Foundation Trusts have found that they receive high turnout figures in the first set of elections, after this the figures tend to decline over time, however our turnout figures are comparable with other trusts.

Due to COVID-19, the elections due to take place in 2020 were postponed until 2021 and the elections due to take place in 2021 were postponed until 2022 to bring them into alignment with the first cycle of elections.

The next elections will take place during the spring of 2024: further details will be available nearer the time.
