A while ago I was interviewed on what it’s like being a governor, and some of my views about what it’s like have now been published in an October 2013 newsletter for trust members.
But the newsletter is not from the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust where I am a governor, it’s from the neighbouring Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, which is moving towards becoming a foundation trust, and which wants to attract good candidates for its governor elections next year.
By the way, I like to think of Worcestershire Health and Care as “WHAC”, but strangely they seem to prefer the unpronounceable HACW (if their Internet domain is anything to go by). Another trust with a pleasingly pronounceable abbreviation is the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, known as SLAM.
Anyway, here’s a link to the newsletter (PDF):
