Have your say on hospital’s future

A hospital is looking for residents to have a say in how it is run by joining its council of governors as a “voice of the people”.
West Suffolk Hospital - which is based in Bury St Edmunds but takes patients from the surrounding areas, including Thetford - has 14 public and five staff vacancies on the new group.
A statement on the hospital’s website said: “Our governors represent the interests of staff and their community.
“They are the voice of the people, sharing ideas, concerns and suggestions on a wider platform.
“They tell the board what they think our hospital should offer and work with them to ensure that community and staff needs are taken into account in the planning of services.

“They bring valuable perspective and contribution to the trust’s activities and they have real influence on the strategic direction and governance of the trust.”
People interested in taking up one of the roles, which last for three years, have until 5pm on Friday, October 6 to nominate themselves.
