The Trust currently has around 2400 members and is keen to encourage local residents, patients, service users, carers, and staff to become members to help develop the way local healthcare services are provided.
At the present time the trust’s application to become a Foundation Trust is on hold. While the Trust values its members, due to the Foundation Trust application being on hold, we have been unable to fully engage with members during 2013-14.
However, our members Members also sit on some of our committees, such as the Good Corporate Citizen Committee, and often attend the Trust public board and annual general meeting.
Members are also invited to participate in the yearly Patient Led Assessment of the Care Environment (PLACE), which assesses the cleanliness, food, privacy and dignity of the patient environment. Some of our members also sit on our Trust Stakeholder Group. More information on becoming a member.
