Council of Governor elections: be the elected voice of RJAH Members

Are you passionate about excellent healthcare provision? Do you feel you can represent the views of the communities where you live?  

If your answers to the above questions are yes then you are the sort of person to join the Council of Governors at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital. 

There are four Public Governor vacancies open and nominations from candidates with a wide range of experiences and backgrounds are invited to join the Council of Governors. 

Harry Turner, Trust Chair, said: “As a Foundation Trust, we have the flexibility to provide health services that our communities need, and our elected Governors play a crucial role in ensuring the views of the wider community are taken into account in providing and developing services. 

“The Governors are responsible for overseeing the nature of how the Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) hold the Board of Directors and Senior Leaders to account – it’s vital for a close working relationship between the Governors and NEDs to ensure the Trust delivers world class patient care.” 

We have the following vacancies in our 2022 Council of Governor Elections: 

  • North Wales – one vacancy 
  • Shropshire – two vacancies 
  • Powys – one vacancy 

All successful applicants will be in office for three years and the role of the Governor is an unpaid position.
