Meet your public governors

Public Governors are elected to represent ten constituencies, with each formed from either several of the wards of Birmingham, Solihull and Lichfield/Tamworth or the Rest of England and Wales.

Each area has one or more governors in proportion to the use of the Trust’s hospitals by residents within that area. Public governors can be patients or non-patients but they do need to live in the constituency area.
