What’s in it for you?

Former governors have described their experience in the role as “a positive thing to do”, “a great way to support my local community”, “I learned so much about how the organisation actually works”, “enlightening to engage with the public and really understand their experience of our services” and “an amazing opportunity to build relationships outside of my usual working environment”

Have you thought about being an NHS Trust Governor?

The Dudley Group of Hospitals (DGOH) are among some of the most technologically advanced in the country, where state-of-the-art equipment and modern, purpose-built buildings combine to create the highest standards of patient care delivered by a dedicated workforce providing hospital and community health services. In the last year, they have been front and centre in delivering the COVID-19 response for the people of Dudley and surrounding areas.

DGOH are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to represent the Public Constituencies listed above on their Council of Governors. The Council help DGOH to improve the services they provide and make a real difference to the way the Trust is governed.

Being a Governor enables you to represent the interests of your community and have a real say in the future development of the Trust. Whilst you don’t need any specific experience or qualifications, as full training is provided, it is encouraged that those with a commitment to making a positive difference to their local community come forward. This is a voluntary role requiring a time commitment of around two days a month which may include some evenings.
