Our Council of Governors come from a range of backgrounds, some with practical NHS experience and some without, representing their own communities.  They help to bring a fresh perspective to life at the Royal in a practical and involved way for the benefit of the Trust's patients and visitors. 

Nicola Smith is the Trust's Governor and Membership Officer, she said; 'It's a great opportunity for someone with an interest in the hospital to get involved.  It's a terrific opportunity for somebody to come and make a real difference to this hospital and represent the interests of you own community, family and friends.'

If you represent any of these constituencies and are interested in finding out more about the role, call 01246 513217 or email
