Nominations for this year's elections close today at 11.59pm.

Becoming a governor gives you the opportunity to have your voice heard, represent the views of the trust's members and play a pivotal role in influencing how decisions are made and services are developed.

From October, vacancies will become available in the public, patient, and staff constituencies. To become a governor, you will need to be a member of the trust in the constituency you wish to stand and be aged 18 or over. More information about how you can become a member can be found here.
