Elections

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 Council of Governors is chaired by the Trust's Chairman and comprises:

  • 15 Public governors (elected by the public members)
  • six Staff governors (elected by the staff members)
  • eight Stakeholder governors (appointed by stakeholder organisations).

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.

Oxford University Hospitals' Council of Governors was set up with an election cycle of alternate years so that not all the governors are up for election at once. This is to maintain some continuity and experience on the Council.

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 and the Declaration of Results for each constituency is available below:

We will be in touch with our newly elected governors shortly, who will then take part in an induction programme which will include information about their role, learning from the experience of other governors, and clarity about their responsibilities and those which are exercised by the Board of Directors.

Election process

Elections are conducted independently of the Trust by a company with expertise in running local government elections and elections for other Foundation Trusts.

Once they are elected the newly elected governors will take part in an induction programme which will include information about their role, learning from the experience of other governors, and clarity about their responsibilities and those which are exercised by the Board of Directors.
