County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust is looking for three new members to join its Council of Governors from the Wear Valley and Teesdale areas.

By putting your name forward you can really make a difference to your local NHS Trust as you represent the views of your community and you will work closely with the Board on how the Trust is managed.

Peter Dixon, Corporate Affairs Manager for County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust said: "This is a real opportunity to have a say in the way health services across County Durham and Darlington will be delivered in the coming years as well as holding the Board to account for its management of the Trust.  We're looking for governors to represent Wear Valley and Teesdale. You must live in the area you represent, be a Trust Member and over the age of 16.

"Governors will have strong working links with the Trust Board to ensure local communities and staff have a greater say in how services are developed and delivered. Our Council of Governors is made up of local people, staff members and representatives of local stakeholder organisations."
