Governor Elections 2021

Are you passionate about excellent healthcare provision in your local community?

Do you feel you can represent the views of the communities where you live? 

If your answers to the above questions are 'yes' and 'yes', then YOU are the sort of person we want to join our Council of Governors.

BCHC delivers more than 100 clinical services in homes, health centres, schools and clinics in YOUR community - so it's vital that the way we deliver our services reflects your needs and wishes.

We’re looking for people of a wide range of experiences and backgrounds to join our Council of Governors - help us bring all our communities into BCHC.

The first stage of our Governor elections is the candidate nomination period, which begins on Monday, 11 January and closes on Monday, 8 February 2021. So you have four weeks to nominate yourself or someone you know to stand.
