Becoming a Foundation Trust is a crucial step in achieving our vision to be recognised as an excellent integrated acute and community care provider and a comprehensive specialist health provider for south west London, Surrey and beyond with thriving programmes of education and research.
It will mean greater involvement for staff, patients and members of the local community in how our healthcare is provided which will bring lasting improvements to our services and better health for communities.
Our consultation on becoming a Foundation Trust closed on Friday 26th April and the team are now busy reading through the hundreds of responses we have received from patients, carers, members of the public and our staff.
Towards the end of May we will publish a report on the consultation which will detail the responses we have received and outline the changes which we have made to our original proposals. These changes will take account of the responses and comments which we have received.
Even though the consultation is closed you can still read the consultation document online.
The next stage of the process is to plan for elections for the Council of Governors to be held in the autumn. But remember, you can only vote in these elections if you are a Foundation Trust member.
