 Our work with the NHS

Whether you conducted your first Council of Governor elections back in 2004 or you are about to embark on them for the first time, we have the experience, knowledge and expertise to assist you in delivering successful elections. Each year we administer over 80% of all Council of Governor elections undertaken.

We have always been instrumental in steering change in the sector, advising the Department of Health on the initial Model Election Rules and then helping to redraft them to incorporate online voting.

We are able to seamlessly integrate our election services with our sister company, Membership Engagement Services (MES), which gives our clients further peace of mind when membership data needs to be transferred. This collaboration also ensures that the electorate information is as up to date as possible and being used in a way that is fully GDPR compliant.

Our reputation as the UK’s leading independent scrutineer brings unrivalled integrity to your election results. Get in touch to find out how we can support your governance needs.

This was the first time I have been involved with Governor Elections here at the Foundation Trust. The team at ERS gave us excellent advice from start to finish.
