Contact Your Governor

Become a member and help shape our services. As a Foundation Trust, we have greater flexibility to provide health services that our communities really need. To do this we need input from you.

If you would like to contact your governor and provide feedback, you can do so via the Corporate Affairs Team at: membership@stockport.nhs.uk.

Please note governors are not responsible for the operational management of the organisation, including responding to complaints regarding a patient’s individual treatment.

The following governors can be contacted directly via the email addresses detailed below:
Howard Austin (public governor, Tame Valley & Werneth) – gov-howard.austin@stockport.nhs.uk
Chris Summerton (public governor, Heatons & Victoria) – gov-chris.summerton@stockport.nhs.uk
