Council of Governors election 2021

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. Ifyou 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 2020 to spring 2021.

Turnout figures are comparable to the previous two elections. The most pleasing aspect is the upturn in voting by staff members from previous years.

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.
