Foundation trusts are part of the NHS and care for patients according to NHS principles and standards. They are monitored by NHS Improvement and are accountable to Parliament.

We have been a foundation trust since 2010 and this means we can respond better to the needs and priorities of our local communities by giving our service users, carers, staff and the public, a greater say in decisions about our future service development and delivery through our foundation trust membership.  

As a foundation trust member, your views, suggestions and ideas will help us to shape our plans to deliver your future healthcare.

Membership can give you a voice in the decision-making process and provide an opportunity to play an active role in our development. It’s free to join and you can get involved as little or as much as you want.
  • Be informed - find out about a wide range of health services
  • Be heard - share your views on how we can improve our services
  • Be invited - attend talks and events about subjects you're interested in
  • Be involved - take part in surveys
  • Be elected - stand for election as a governor 
  • Be active – vote for your governor representative in elections
All our members will also receive a copy of our biannual newsletter Reflect. 

As a member of the Trust you can use the NHS discounts website to shop online, print out vouchers, get advice from confidential, free help line services and book holidays - all in the knowledge that you’ll be saving money. Visit the health services discounts website to register.

Just complete our membership form on the right of this page to join us and have a voice in shaping the services we provide.

Please note, you must be 14 years or older to become a member. For more information, please contact our Membership Team on 01925 664 803 or email: ftmembership@nwbh.nhs.uk.
