You don’t have to be a member to join these meetings, they are free to attend and we discuss different topics and services across the Trust.

The election process: Nominations and voting for Governors took place during April-June 2019. The process was managed by Electoral Reform Services (ERS), the independent scrutineer. Members who stand for election were required to submit an election statement which included information about themselves and why they think they would be a good Governor, together with a declaration confirming any potential conflicts of interest. 

Who can become a Governor? Only members of EPUT may become Governors and must be aged 16 or over at the nomination date. You can become a member by contacting the Trust Secretary Office on Freephone 0800 023 2059 or email epunft.membership@nhs.net
