As a foundation trust we have a membership community made up of a public constituency of local people and a staff constituency for all permanent members of staff.
Becoming a public member is free and gives you the opportunity to support the Trust by sharing your views and influencing the way the hospital is run.
Members ensure that the community’s views are considered in the development of the Trust’s strategy.
Public members may be from special interest groups, independent activists who want to share their skills and experience or simply people who, like many of our patients or relatives, just have an interest in supporting their local hospital and finding out what’s going on.
Public members must live in the Trust constituency areas within Berkshire and Southern Oxfordshire. Staff are automatically added to the staff membership unless they choose to formally opt out. As of September 2016 we had approximately 9,000 members.
Members of the public can apply online here. Becoming a member is FREE. You will receive information from us about events and meetings you can attend, but is entirely up to you whether you wish to attend.
