Introducing your governors
Local people working for their communities
Public governors, elected by local people to work with Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, are working on your behalf to improve health services for the future.
They represent your interests. You can help them carry out their role effectively by giving them your views. Tell them how you think services could be improved. Pass on the ideas and suggestions you think would enhance patient care. Let them know what you want your local hospital to offer.
What your governors do...
The role of you public governors includes:
- Representing the interests and views of local people in North Derbyshire
- Giving you information about the hospital, its visions and its performance.
- Selecting and appointing non-executive directors and the chairman of the corporation.
- Appraising the performance of the chairman
- Approving the appointment of a chief executive.
- Attending meetings of the Council of Governors and other committees.
- Monitoring performance against the Trust's Service Development Strategy and other targets
- Advising and working in partnership with the hospital's Board of Directors
What your governors can't do...
Your governors are not there to deal with any personal complaints or issues you have about the hospital, or your care and treatment. These must still be dealt with through the official complaints procedure. You should contact the Assistance and Complaints Service direct on 01246 512640.
