NEW governors have been voted in at South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS).

Members of the SCAS NHS Foundation Trust voted in the governors earlier this week, with David Wesson and Loretta Light set to serve Oxfordshire for a term of three years.

The 17,000 members of SCAS are represented by their elected governors, who feed the views of members into the trust, in order to shape future services.

Lena Samuels, chair of SCAS NHS Foundation Trust, said: “On behalf of SCAS and the board of directors, I am delighted to welcome newly elected governors to the council of governors, and also to congratulate those who have been successfully re-elected.

“Governors play a vital role in representing the voice of patients, staff and stakeholders in the design and delivery of our services, and are greatly valued by the trust.

“I look forward to our collective working on this important agenda going forward, and in supporting the next stage of the trust’s development.”
