Our Values: Compassionate | Aspirational | Resourceful | Excellent


As a foundation trust we have a membership community made up of a public constituency of local people, a staff constituency for all permanent members of staff and a constituency for our volunteers.


Membership Engagement

The Trust is committed to meaningful engagement with its members.  We carried out a data cleanse in August 2016 and removed members for whom we did not have email addresses.  This was because our membership database, originally created in 2006, held over 17,000 public members but a significant number of data entries were incomplete.


Members are still welcome to register even without an email address and they will be able to participate in governor elections which are circulated by post.  However, we will be able to stay in touch with our members more regularly through email. 


If you wish to become a member or believe that you may be one of our members who have now been removed, please fill in our online membership application form or contact foundation.trust@royalberkshire.nhs.uk or telephone 0118 322 7405.
