Governors have lots of important responsibilities such as appointing and holding to account the chair and other non-executive directors, contributing to the development of the Trust’s strategy, and engaging with the members who elect them.
Governors need to be confident communicators and able to speak to our members and the public about healthcare matters.
To be eligible to be a Governor you must be a member of the constituency you wish to stand for and be 16 or over.
Members have until the autumn to complete an application to become a Governor

This August every home in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse will receive a yellow letter (a ‘Household Enquiry Form’) requiring residents to confirm everyone over the age of 16 who lives in their property.
When the arrives, simply visit householdresponse.com/southandvale to confirm that your details are correct or, if not, provide the correct information. You will need the 2-part code on the front of your yellow letter to do this.
South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils need this information to make sure everyone who is eligible to vote is able to do so in future elections, including the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in May 2020.
Anyone who doesn’t have access to the internet can confirm their details by completing and returning the form that comes with the letter in the reply paid envelope. If your details are correct you can confirm this by phone or text – the details required for this are included on the yellow letter.
Important – by law, each household must confirm their details, even if they are correct. Anyone who fails to do so could be fined up to £1,000.
