Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust was authorised as a Foundation Trust in June 2009, becoming Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust (RBHFT). As part of the authorisation process, a membership was recruited and elections were held to appoint the first Foundation Trust Governors.
A Membership Strategy was devised in 2013 in order to set out plans for future development of the membership to ensure that this is representative of the communities served by the Foundation Trust - as required under the terms of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 and enshrined in the Constitution of the Foundation Trust.
The Strategy for 2015-17 and has now been updated following review by the Membership Steering Group prior to presentation to the Council of Governors on 31st October 2017. The Membership Steering Committee will continue to oversee implementation of the strategy and will provide regular reports on progress to the Council of Governors.
