Your chance to get involved in local hospital services and care

King's College Hospital is looking for people from Southwark to join its Council of Governors. Nominations are now open for four vacancies for members who will represent the community of Southwark.

The Council of Governors plays a vital role in giving a voice to patients, members of the public, staff and partner organisations, so that they may help shape the services the Trust delivers and ensure that those services meet the needs of the communities it serves.

They are looking for people who are passionate about their local health services. If you are a Southwark resident, or have been a patient of King's and want to have a say in the running of the hospital, please consider standing for election as a governor.

For further information visit the King's website or phone 020 3299 4932.

Alternatively, you could attend their Awareness Session on 14 June 2017, from 2:30pm to 6pm in the Board Room of the Hambleden Wing on the Trust's Denmark Hill site. Representatives from King's and from their election services provider, Electoral Reform Services, will speak about the role of the governor and the election process. Some of the current governors will be available to answer any questions you may have. To reserve your place contact the Foundation Trust Office on or 020 3299 4932.

Members of the Trust will receive instructions on how to nominate themselves, either by post or by email. If you are not already a member, you can join free of charge here. Nomination forms can be submitted and completed online via the dedicated election platform.

Nominations are open from 22 May to 12 July. Results of the election will be announced on Thursday 28 September.
