People are being invited to apply to join the council of governors at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, near Oswestry.

Candidates with a wide range of experiences and backgrounds are invited to apply.

Frank Collins, trust chairman, said: “As a foundation trust, we have the flexibility to provide health services that our communities need and our elected governors play a crucial role in ensuring the views of the wider community are taken into account in providing and developing services.

“The governors are responsible for overseeing the nature of how the non-executive directors (NEDs) hold the board of directors and senior leaders to account – it’s vital for a close working relationship between the governors and NEDs to ensure the trust delivers world class patient care.”

All new successful applicants will be in office for three years with any re-elected applicants’ term of office brought in line with the trust’s constitution.

The role of a governor is voluntary position and is unpaid.
