Anyone can be a member if they are over 16 and:
- are a patient at the hospital; or
- are living in the area covered by Northumberland, Tyne and Wear Strategic Health Authority (from the Scottish border down to North Yorkshire and across to the Cumbrian border in the West); or
- are a member of City Hospitals Sunderland staff.
Members in each of these groups (public, staff or patient) can vote to elect representatives (Governors) from within their group to sit on our Council of Governors. This Council will help us to shape our plans for the future and how the Trust is run.
Our next elections are not due to take place until June 2019. If you wish to put yourself forward to stand for election to the Council of Governors or simply vote in our elections, you must be a member so do please join.
