Four candidates are going up against each other for just one seat as a hospital public governor in North Lincolnshire.
Members of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust can now cast their votes and appoint one of the following people: Kath Allen, Beryl Allison, Shelly Fell-Bowers and David Wall.
Liz Stones has been re-appointed as the governor for North East Lincolnshire following an uncontested seat in the elections.
The Trust will be piloting its governor elections electronically this time – one of very few Trusts in the country to do so – to benefit efficiencies in communication. Emails will now be sent to accessible members with an electronic link to the UK Engage website for voting online. Members who do not have an email address will still be sent ballot packs in the post.
Voting closes at 5pm on Thursday November 20 with the results announced on Friday November 21.
Anyone wanting to become a Trust member can register by visiting www.nlg.nhs.uk/about/membership/join/ or call (01724) 387946. You will not be able to vote in this election but will be eligible to do so in the future.
