STRUCTURE: Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is holding an election for governor positions this month.

Candidates are standing for election to three seats: two public governors representing people in Doncaster and one public governor representing people in Bassetlaw. The previous representatives have had to stand down.

Chris Scholey, chair of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Governors are the lifeblood of the Trust and play a vital role in setting our direction, making sure we listen to patients and local people, and that we’re focused on the right goals when it comes to quality of care and value for money.” 

Anyone who is a member of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust can vote before 24 August.
