Governors - Elections
Dorset HealthCare is holding elections to its Council of Governors in September. There are seven seats up for grabs to members of the public – two representing Bournemouth, two representing Poole, and three representing the Dorset and Rest of England constituency.
Dorset HealthCare is the biggest NHS organisation in the county, with more than 5,500 staff running 12 community hospitals, specialist inpatient mental health units and a host of community-based services.
We were recently rated “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission – the first trust of our kind in the South to achieve this.
Elected governors represent the views of local people about our services, as well as raise concerns, inform decision making, help set Trust priorities and hold the Board of Directors to account. They are also ambassadors for Dorset HealthCare, promoting our work in the community.
