New membership strategy 2019-2022

We have recently launched our new three year membership strategy which will improve how we engage with new and exisiting members.

It’s easy to become a member – you can sign up by:

Becoming a member is completely free and demonstrates that you:

  • Support us
  • Believe in our values (Kind, Excellent, Responsible, Respectful)
  • Care about the services we provide
  • Want to hear more from us and celebrate our success

Members will:

  • Receive regular news and information from the Trust
  • Receive invitations to exclusive events and seminars
  • Be entitled to vote for and elect the Council of  Governors
  • Be able to stand for election to the Council of Governors

We have a membership which is both representative of our diverse local community and which reflects the needs of our specialist patients from outside our immediate catchment area. Our membership includes patients, local residents and other members of the public, as well as our staff.

We already have over 20,000 members.  More than 12,500 of these are members of the public, with the rest being members of staff. Our members can stand as a Governor and/or vote in our Governor elections for the Council of Governors, who will engage with the  membership and represent members’ views as they  advise our Board of Directors. The Council of Governors  are made up of a majority of 15 public Governors elected  by the membership, as well as 5 elected staff Governors  and 8 appointed Governors from among our stakeholders.
