VOTING has begun to elect public governors to Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust.

Voting packs have been sent out to trust members. The deadline for postal votes is March 22.

Successful candidates will have an induction next month, before taking up their posts in May.

Paul Hogg, the trust’s director of corporate affairs, said: “We’ve had some really good nominations from people living across the district. It’s great to see that so many people want to join our council of governors.”

Staff governors are also being selected.
