Becoming a Governor

Anyone who is a member of the Trust and aged at least 16 is eligible to stand as a Governor. Our governors play an integral role in the running of our trust and represent you! Each governor has a constituency and is committed to talking to local people to make sure your voices and opinions on the Trust are heard. The Trust’s Constitution sets out the principles of how the Council of Governors is governed. Contact with a governor should be addressed to them at the following address: FAO Company Secretary, South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, 7-8 Talisman Business Centre, Talisman Road, Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX26 6HR.  Or you can send an email to company.secretary@scas.nhs.uk. Please remember to include the name of the Governor/s you would like to contact in your message.
