This is the third survey of foundation trust governors undertaken since the role was introduced in 2004. Overall, governors are more positive about their role and are making progress in their statutory duties and engagement with staff, the board of directors, trust members, patients and service users and the public. Despite this, governors require further support to make sure they feel trained to carry out their role and are able to communicate effectively with the public and their membership.
