Nominations open for Council of Governors election

1 Jul 2022

Members of the public can now nominate themselves to stand as candidates for election as a Public Governor of the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

This year sees the first election to our Council of Governors since the Royal Devon was established in April 2022, following the integration of the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

Royal Devon Governors play a vitally important role by providing a direct connection between the Trust, the community we serve and our partners. Governors have a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds, but what they share is a real passion for helping to shape local health services in a way that best meets the needs of patients and the public.

We have 14 Public Governor posts available, and terms of office of one, two and three years.  

For more information about being a Governor, including an introductory guide for those interested in being a Governor, FAQs and details on requesting a nomination pack, visit our Governor elections page. The deadline for nominations is 5pm on Monday 18 July 2022.

Please note that if you wish to stand for election as a Public Governor you will need to become a member of the Trust if you are not already.
