Foundation Trusts are membership organisations. We are offering all those who have an interest in or connection to the trust the opportunity to become a member of St George's.
Becoming a member is free and demonstrates that you:
We expect to attract a membership which is both representative of our diverse local community and which can reflect the needs of our specialist patients from outside our immediate catchment area. Our membership will include patients, local residents and other members of the public, as well as our staff.
We already have around 12,000 members (Jan 2013). More than 5,000 of these are members of the public, with the rest being members of staff.
As we become a Foundation Trust we will establish a Council of Governors, who will engage with the membership and represent members' views as they advise our Board of Directors. The Council of Governors will be made up of a majority of public Governors elected by the membership, as well as elected staff Governors and appointed Governors from among our stakeholders.
It's easy to become a member. You can sign up by:
