Frequently asked questions

What if I am already a member of another Trust?

You can apply to be a member of as many Foundation Trusts as you like. We encourage our members to support their local trusts as we work closely with neighbouring trusts to provide integrated local healthcare.

How much of my time will membership take?

How much time you choose to give to being a member is up to you. You can decide how involved you would like to be. You might choose to receive updates, you might like to comment on our plans or take part in events. Alternatively, you may consider standing for election as a governor on our Council of Governors.

How much will it cost me to become a member?

Nothing. Membership is free.

Is the 10,500 members the maximum amount of members you need to recruit?

No, we would like to recruit as many people as possible to ensure we have a representative membership across the areas we provide services to; Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire. There is no maximum number of members we can recruit.
