Some of the outgoing governors with UCLH chairman, Richard Murley, during a gathering at UCLH this week
The new governors are all patients or members of the public who will now have the opportunity to have a real impact on the care patients receive at UCLH.
The 33-strong governing body which is comprised of patients, public, carers, stakeholder and staff representatives are there to ensure the trust provides services which meet the needs and priorities of the community it serves.
The new governors will take up their posts officially on 1 September. Fuller biographies will be provided thereafter.
We would like to thank all the outgoing governors for the enthusiasm and commitment they have shown during their terms of office. We hope they will continue to offer their support to UCLH.
