Council of Governors

Foundation Trusts have a Council of Governors which is made up of appointed Governors and elected public and staff Governors.

Kingston’s authorisation document to operate as a Foundation Trust can be found here and the Trust’s Constitution is available here.

With the support of our members, our Governors ensure our work is in keeping with our values, meeting the needs of our local residents and supporting all who use our services to make us successful.
