Thinking of Becoming a Governor?

Are you interested in shaping the way we plan and deliver our integrated community, mental health and learning disability services across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough?

One of the guiding principles of being a Foundation Trust is that we are accountable to local people. Our Governors consist of members of the public, past and present service users, carers and our staff.

We are looking for new Governors to help shape the future of healthcare in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

By becoming a Governor you can...

  • Help influence the future of your local health services.
  • Receive news and updates through our website and newsletter.
  • Come to networking events and training sessions and extend your knowledge on mental health, physical health and general wellbeing within the NHS.
  • Take part in surveys and consultations on our services to help us shape a better future.
  • Support our campaigns to promote good health and fight mental health stigma.
  • Hold the Board of Directors to account.

How will Governors help us to shape our future?

  • Formally ratify decisions made by the Board of Directors
  • Sharing your knowledge of communities
