Have your say about local health matters by becoming a member of our Trust.
Membership provides even more opportunities for the local community, patients, staff and partners to get involved in our work, share experiences and have a much bigger say in the way the local health services are run.
You can decide how involved you would like to be. You might choose to receive updates, you might like to comment on our plans and take part in events. Alternatively, you may consider standing for election as a Governor on our Council of Governors. The choice is yours!
The larger and more involved our membership is, and the more closely it reflects the different communities we treat as patients, the better. We aim to deliver the best in care and make improvements based on what say. We need as many interested people as possible to join us – and we'd love you to be one of them.
Join us today – it's quick and easy and it won't cost you a penny.
Our services are provided from over 100 locations including children’s hospitals, day hospitals and numerous outpatient settings such as health centres and children’s centres as well as in people’s homes.
By becoming a Foundation Trust we will be accountable to our public and the local communities we serve. We will have greater freedom and flexibility to determine how to deliver services which meet local priorities and deliver our aims. Through membership we will listen to your views and opinions which will help us to influence decisions about the Trusts future.
As a member you will be able to elect a Council of Governors. The Council of Governors will advise our Board on how we should provide and improve services. This will be achieved by ensuring the views of local people (members) are taken into consideration when decisions about healthcare are made. Visit our Governors page to find out more.
As a member you can get involved as much or as little as you like. Together we can make a difference and continue to keep people well in their own homes. We all have opinions about what we expect from services –your views are important, and as a member you have the opportunity to have your say.
