    Governor Elections 2019

    Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust is the new name for Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, reflecting the wide range of services that the Trust provides throughout the area. 

    Governors form a vital link between the Trust and the community that it serves. The Council of Governors meets monthly (except January and July), usually in Preston. Governors can help shape the future of service delivery, contribute to key decisions and see first-hand how the Trust's staff deliver a wide range of mental health and community services from over 400 locations across Lancashire and South Cumbria.

    A principal duty of the Council of Governors is to appoint the Chair and Non-Executive Directors. The Council of Governors has the collective duty of holding the Non-Executive Directors to account for the performance of the Board of Directors in delivering against its strategic plan.

    Nominations are invited for the following vacancies. You can check your constituency using this Constituency Guide.
