Have a voice, become a governor
Our public governors play an important role on our Council of Governors and bring valuable experiences and ideas to our Trust.

A public governor is elected by the members in the constituency they are standing to be a governor within. Each of our public governors is appointed for a period of up to three years.

The public constituency is drawn from seven areas. These are made up of six boroughs where we deliver our services (Halton, Knowsley, St Helens, Warrington, Wigan and Sefton), plus the seventh constituency called 'other', which represents areas outside of these six boroughs.
 
How do I become a governor?
The Trust welcomes nominations from people of any age (16 and over), race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender, disability and those with caring responsibilities.
 
Please note that in order to be elected to our Council of Governors as a public governor you will need to live in the constituency where you would like to be nominated.

Our staff governors are elected to represent the interests of staff members within their staff groups. We have five staff groups which include: Nursing, Medical, Allied Health Professionals, Managers (8a and above) and Support Services.
