All Council of Governors meetings are held in public and local people are welcome to attend and observe first hand your governors at work.

The Council of Governors is made up of 19 public governors who represent the constituencies of Thurrock, Basildon, Brentwood and the rest of England. There are a further 5 staff and 5 appointed governors from partner organisations. Our governors play an important part in providing impartial and considered observations on the running of the Trust, while also acting as a voice of the views, concerns and aspirations of the community and overseeing the plans and performance of Basildon and Orsett Hospitals.

Public governors are elected by the public members of the NHS Foundation Trust. Anyone over the age of 12 can join and members over the age of 16 can apply to become a governor. Members receive a regular newsletter and can participate in surveys, focus groups, and meetings, if they wish.
