Airedale Hospital is seeking public governors.

Seven seats are up for grabs, covering areas including Keighley Central, Keighley West and South Craven. Colin Millar, chairman of Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Most people become governors because they are interested in putting something back into their community. Their role is to ensure the non-executive directors account for the performance of the board by asking the right questions and considering reports on how the trust is working.

“They also represent the interests of the public and members, so need to devote time to finding out what they think.”

Candidates must be a trust member, aged 16 or over and live in the area they want to represent. Contact the Electoral Reform Services on 0208 889 9203, e-mail ciara.norris@electoralreform.co.uk or text 2FT AD and your name and address to 88802, for a nomination form. Call (01535) 294540 or e-mail members@anhst.nhs.uk for further information. The deadline for nominations is April 10.
