Following its recent election process, South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is delighted to welcome six new members to its Council of Governors, along with two existing governors who were re-elected.
The results of the elections for public governors were as follows:
- Hampshire – Barry Lipscomb, David Luckett, Richard Coates
- Berkshire – Frank Epstein, Mark Davis
- Oxfordshire – Joyce Hutchinson, Mike Fox-Davies, Paul Ader
As a Foundation Trust, SCAS is committed to representing its communities as effectively as possible, promoting public awareness of and involvement in healthcare issues. Elected governors represent Trust members and help ensure local people have a say in how the Trust’s services are delivered now and in the future.
“The Council of Governors has developed considerably since we started out on our journey in March 2012 and, given the contribution they have made, I am delighted that Barry Lipscomb and Richard Coates were successful in being re-elected for a second term. I look forward to working with our six new public governors who will bring some fresh ideas and perspectives to SCAS.
I would also like to thank those governors who decided not to stand for re-election; they have all made a major contribution to the Trust and I’m sure will continue to offer SCAS great support in their role as members. ”
The new governors will be formally appointed from 1 March 2017 for a three year term. The election was conducted on behalf of the Trust by Electoral Reform Services.
