Are you interested in becoming a member of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust?
The people of Doncaster and Bassetlaw have shown great support for our hospitals trust particularly since the outbreak of the Coronavirus Pandemic. What the public may not know is that they continue to support our Trust by becoming a member and contributing to our future direction.
What is Membership?
We became a Foundation Trust in 2004, which granted the organisation more freedom to act than a traditional NHS trust, and although we are still closely regulated and must comply with the same strict quality measures as a non-foundation trust, it allows us to shape the future of our services locally to meet the needs of our service users and the local community. As a member you can:
- Have a say in the future of your local hospitals
- Receive membership information and a welcome pack, including information on how to use NHS Discounts
- Have the opportunity to attend members’ events
- Receive Foundations for Health, our member magazine
- Take part in Member surveys
- Vote in the elections for governors
- Stand for election yourself as a governor
- Life-long membership is free!
Who can be a member?
Anyone can become a member. If you live within Doncaster, you will be registered as a Doncaster Public Member. If you live within Bassetlaw, you will be registered as a Bassetlaw Public Member. If you live anywhere else, you will be registered as a Rest of England & Wales Public Member. Staff at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals automatically become Staff Members.
Join us as a Member
By becoming a member of the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, you show your commitment to your local hospitals. We want to make membership work for you as well. It’s all about using local knowledge and listening to local views so we can make the most of the freedom that NHS Foundation Trust status gives.
To become a member, please fill out the membership application form online and once you have joined as a member, you can have as much or as little involvement as you wish.
Your details will be used in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations.
Whilst Members have the ability to influence the developments of the Trust, they do not get preferential treatment as patients – this is determined on clinical need.
