Voting has begun to elect four new Public Governors to the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust to help shape its services and plan for the future.
Voting packs have been sent out to all eligible public members – with the message to make your vote count before the ballot closes on 24 October.
The vacancies, created by the current Governors coming to the end of their term of office, are in the City of Bath, North East Somerset, Mendip, and North Wiltshire.
Brian Stables, Trust Chairman said: “These are exciting and changing times for the RUH and some really great candidates have put themselves forward for election.
“Becoming a Governor is a great opportunity to contribute to the development of the RUH and its role in our local communities that it serves.”
“If you are already one of our members and live in the constituencies listed above I would really encourage you all to use this opportunity to vote for the candidate who will best represent your views.”
If you are a member and have not received your ballot pack as yet, contact the Electoral Reform Services on 020 8889 9203.
You can find more information about the election and a list of candidates on the Trust website.
Voting began on 4th October and runs until 5pm on 24th October. The results will be announced on 25th October.
