Become a governor
Any member of the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust can nominate themselves for a governor vacancy in their constituency. We hold elections most years and, if you are appointed, you will hold office for 3 years.
To become a governor, you must already be a Foundation Trust member. Find out how to become a member.
