Trevor Jones, Chairman of South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“Our Council of Governors is the voice of local people helping to set the strategic direction of the Trust, based on members’ views, and holding the Trust Board to account. The current Council works well but is determined to improve and we are looking for new governors who have an interest in local health services, to come and help make a positive contribution to the development of SCAS.”

Interested members of the public can self-nominate for election as a Governor and nominations need to be received by Thursday 27 October 2016.
