Election to Council of Governors

Governor Elections 2019

 Could you be a Governor?

We are proud to have an active Council of Governors made up of 27 members of our patients, the public and members of staff, as well as some key partners from the voluntary and health and social care sector.

Our governors act as a critical friend and advisor, representing the interests of the organisation, staff, members and the wider public.

The council of Governors meets four times a year and as a Governor you will receive support from the Corporate Affairs Team.

The 2019 Election has now completed and we are pleased to announce the four successful candidates who have recently been elected to our Council of Governors.

There are two public candidates,

  • Ray Topple from Crawley District
  • Sally Brady from Tandridge


Two members of staff

  • Dr Patrick Morgan, Medical and Dental
  • Gabriella Ffrench who will represent Other Clinical Staff.


The Governors provide an invaluable service to the Trust by acting as a conduit and a voice between patients, staff, the public and Trust leadership; raising issues, concerns, suggestions, they also play a crucial role communicating and advocating strategies and plans.
