Election of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust Governors May 2012 

Five new public Governors have been elected to the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust Council of Governors following elections held in the Trust’s constituencies.

June Griffin, Sir Raymond Jack , Andrew Freemantle, Nicholas Sherman and Sarah Bealey  were newly elected to public constituencies,  with John Carvell, Chris Wain, Beth Robertson, John Markwell and Carole Noonan successfully re-elected.

The elections were held by Electoral Reform Services on behalf of the Trust.

The Trust has seven public constituencies. These are Salisbury City, South Wiltshire Rural, North Dorset, New Forest, Kennet, West Wiltshire and East Dorset.  The number of Governors per constituency is based on the population, with Governors elected for a three year period.

Luke March, Chairman of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: “I would like to welcome our new public   Governors and the five Governors who were successfully re-elected. Our Governors provide an essential link between the Trust and our members, feeding back information that can be used to help shape and plan our services for the benefit of our patients and I know that they will have an invaluable role to play as we move forward in the future.”

As well as public Governors, the Trust has staff Governors,  and a patient/carer Governor who represents the interests of patients from the Trust’s specialist services. Two new Governors, Mandy Cripps and Brian Fisk were  elected to the staff  constituency, joining Lynda Weeks, Christine White Colette Martindale and Shaun Fountion who return unopposed. Existing patient carer/ representative Andrew Farrow also retains his seat.

Luke March said: “ I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Governors who were either unsuccessful or who stood down. I also  want to  acknowledge the tremendous commitment  and invaluable contribution that all our Governors make to the membership , the Trust and of course to local people who use our hospital services.”

More details on the election results can be found at  under Foundation at the top of the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust Homepage, where there is more about  NHS Foundation Trust  status and the benefits of joining as a member.”
