Council of Governors elections 2022

At Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, our governors play a key role in representing the views of our patient, public and staff members, ensuring that our services meet the needs of our communities.

If you have an interest in our Trust and in helping us continue to deliver the best possible care to our patients, then please consider standing for election as a governor.

We are currently holding vacancies for governor seats:

  • 4 seats in the Guy's and St Thomas' patient class
  • 1 seat in the patient carer class 
  • 2 seats in the public constituency area 1 (around Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals)
  • 1 seat in the public constituency area 2 (around Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals)
  • 1 seat in the public constituency area 3 (the rest of England and Wales)
  • 2 seats in the Guy's and St Thomas' non-clinical staff class

If you are a member we will be sending you information about how to stand and vote for election by email or in the post.

Governor quote

'I'm incredibly proud to have been associated with an organisation such as Guy's and St Thomas'. As a patient governor I felt I was able to bring a different view to many discussions and ensure that the needs of the local community were taken into account.'
