Member and Governor Zone
Welcome to the Governor Zone. In this section you will find useful information if you are already a governor or thinking of becoming a governor.
What is a Member?
Being a member of Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust gives people the opportunity to get involved in the decisions we make and help us to plan and develop local services. It also means you can get to learn about opportunities to become more involved in the Trust, as well as voting on Governor elections and even standing for election yourself.
What is a Governor?
Governors have an important role in making the Trust publicly accountable for the services we provide.
They are elected by GMMH members or appointed by one of our partnership organisations and form the Council of Governors. Appointed governors represent stakeholder organisations such as our local councils or charities. Governors are responsible for representing the interests of members to the Trust’s Board of Directors. Members can be service users, their family members, carers, staff and members of the public.
