The Council of Governors are the voice of the community, ensuring that local people have a say in the running of their hospital.

They are responsible for:

  • Representing the interests of Stockport NHS Foundation Trust members and partner organisations in the local health economy.
  • Regularly feeding back information about the Trust, its vision and its performance to the constituency they represent.
  • If necessary, chairing or attending relevant sub-committees.
  • Appointing the Non Executive Directors, including the Chair, of the Trust.
  • Appointing the Trust’s Auditor.
  • Working with the Board of Directors to produce plans for the future development of the Trust.
  • Receiving, at a public meeting, copies of the Trust’s annual accounts, auditor’s reports and annual reports, and
  • If concerns about the performance of the management board cannot be resolved at a local level, informing the Independent Regulator for NHS Foundation Trusts.
