Nursing & Midwifery Staff Governors

1. What are we responsible for?

All staff become members of the CMFT NHS Foundation Trust, this means that you can have a real say, through your elected representatives (Governors), in shaping future services and strategic planning.
As members of the Nursing and Midwifery constituency you have the right to elect one or more Members to the Council of Governors.  The minimum number of Members for Nursing and Midwifery is two staff governors. 

As a Governors your views matter to us Governors are your voice and if you would like to share any views or comments regarding our forward plan or if you have any other ideas and suggestions, you can contact us directly - e-mail contact details are listed.
