Hospital seeks new governors

Have your say

PEOPLE in Barnsley folk with an interest in health matters are invited to stand for election for the town’s hospital’s council of governors.

Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust wants people to represent the views of the public from all areas of Barnsley and beyond.

Joe Unsworth, lead governor, said: “We are looking for people who want to be involved in the future plans of the hospital that will actively encourage others to share their views with us too.

“Our role as the council of governors is to hold the hospital’s board of directors to account for its performance as well as helping to shape its future plans - so this really is an opportunity for people to get more involved in their hospital.”

Governors must be members of the trust. For more information, call 01226 435000.
