Governor support


A committed, knowledgeable and effective council of governors is one of the cornerstones of a foundation trust's success. It has a key role to play in the future of the NHS in providing support and challenge to the board helping shape the organisation’s future strategy.

Our governor support programme helps to achieve excellent governance for all of our trust members and ultimately contribute to improving the overall quality of healthcare in the NHS. The programme is for individuals who are thinking about becoming a governor, new governors as well as those who have been in role for some time.

As part of our national training programme, GovernWell, which is currently being delivered virtually, has 100% of attendees saying they would recommend our training courses to other governors.

We provide support and guidance for governors through our annual, free Governor Focus conference and regional development workshops, as well as bespoke, in-house training. We also produce a quarterly governor focus newsletter to keep governors up-to-date with the latest developments in the sector.
