NHS Foundation Trust Code of Governance

What does the NHS Foundation Trust Code of Governance say about Governors?

  • Every NHS Foundation Trust will have a Council of Governors which is responsible for representing the interest of NHS Foundation Trust members, and partner organisations in the local health economy in the governance of the NHS Foundation Trust.
  • Governors must act in the best interests of the NHS Foundation Trust and should adhere to its values and code of conduct.
  • The Council of Governors has a statutory duty to hold the Non Executive Directors individually and collectively to account for the performance of the Board of Directors.
  • Governors are responsible for regularly feeding back information about the NHS Foundation Trust, its vision and its performance to the constituencies and the stakeholder organisations that either elected them or appointed them.
