Currently, our membership is around 10,000 and is made up of patients, carers, members of the public and staff.
FT members play an active part in influencing our future and can:
- elect representatives to serve on the board of governors
- stand for election to the board of governors
- put themselves forward for appointment as non-executive board directors – including the chairman
- make sure they are consulted on plans for future development of the foundation trust and its services.
