Election for governors

Candidate Governors are elected to our Council of Governors each year by Foundation Trust members.

There are 19 elected governors on the Council of Governors. The remaining governors are appointed by other organisations such as Cambridge City Council or the University of Cambridge.

Of the elected governors: 

  • eight are from the patient membership
  • seven are from the public membership
  • four are from the staff membership

Governors are normally elected for a term of three years, however some governors may a serve shorter term if they are replacing a governor who has stood down early. The elections are staggered so each year approximately one third of the governors in each constituency are up for elections.

If the number of candidates in a particular membership constituency is equal to or less than the number of vacancies, the candidates are elected unopposed. If the number of candidates exceeds the number of vacancies, an election is held.

If an election is held ballot papers are sent (hard copy or electronically) to all members in the particular constituency. Each member will receive one vote per vacancy in their constituency. At the conclusion of the ballot, the highest scoring candidate/s will be elected to the Council of Governors.

The nomination period for the 2018 election is now closed and ballot papers will be dispatched Friday 27th April 2018.
