Importantly, it is the duty of the council of governors to represent the interests of NHS foundation trust members and the public.
This training explores what it means to represent the interests of members and the public and reflects on ways to build effective relationships in order to present their views to the board. You will also share good practice with your peers and reflect on how you can support engagement activities within your trust.
