Election of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust Governors 


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

Jan Sanders, Katherine Sanders and Lynn Taylor were newly elected, with Alastair Lack successfully re-elected.

The elections were held by Electoral Reform Services on behalf of the Trust. The Trust has eight public constituencies. These are Salisbury City, South Wiltshire Rural, North Dorset, New Forest, Kennet, West Wiltshire, East Dorset and the Rest of England. The number of Governors per constituency is based on the population, with Governors elected for three year periods up to a maximum of nine years.

Nick Marsden, Chairman of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust said: “I would like to welcome our new public Governors and congratulate Alastair Lack who was 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 they will have an invaluable role to play in the future success of the Trust.”

As well as public Governors, the Trust has staff Governors and nominated Governors. Nominated Governors are drawn from the Trust’s stakeholders such as Wiltshire Council and local Clinical Commissioning Groups and are responsible for providing their organisations with information about the Trust's performance and in turn keeping the Council of Governor’s informed of stakeholders’ views.

Dr Marsden said:

“This year Celeste Collins, Robert Coate and Paul Goldman completed their final term of office. They were part of the first Council of Governors elected in 2006 when the Trust gained Foundation Trust status and they have served the hospital and our patients with distinction. I want to use this opportunity to acknowledge their outstanding commitment and contribution to the membership, the Trust and to local people who use our hospital services and wish them well for the future.”

Notes to Editors:

The Council of Governors has a total of 26 Governors and meets formally four times a year, as well as in individual topic based groups. The Governors communicate regularly with their members through the Trust’s website, newsletter and constituency meetings. The full list of the new Council of Governors is:
