Be the voice of your local
community by standing for governor
UNTIL 4 May, Cheshire and Wirral
Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) are looking for 2 people who access
services, or cares for someone who does, to fill 2 service user/carer seats.
CWP governors bring with them a diverse range of knowledge, skills and
experience, which is highly valued by the Trust. There are no specific
qualifications required to be a governor; enthusiasm and a desire to make a
difference are the most important things! If you are aged 16 or over and are
interested in improving health services in your area, supporting the work of CWP,
giving something back to your local communities or a challenging role that can
make a real difference, then being a governor may be for you!
CWP lead governor, Anna Usherwood, says:- "The Council of Governors is
responsible for representing members' interests and provides a link between
members and the Trust's Board of Directors. All members are entitled to have a
say in how the Trust is run and those who want to shape the future of the NHS
can stand for election as a governor."
CWP chairman, David Eva, says:- "Our governors are a real asset to us in
representing the views of people who care about our services, as well as those
who are directly involved with the Trust. As an organisation, we are
increasingly challenging ourselves to look at different ways of working to
ensure we deliver high quality, integrated and innovative services; having a
representative Board of Governors is integral to this."
