As a foundation trust we are accountable to our members – local people who have joined our organisation because they take an interest in what we do, our staff are also members. In April 2017, the members’ council approved a refreshed membership strategy.
This strategy takes into account the huge potential to empower people in local communities to influence services through effective involvement and working together, recognising communities have a lot to offer and can add value to the local delivery of health care. The strategy sets out our ambition over 2017-2020 to effectively communicate, engage and involve our membership. The strategy sets out three high level objectives which are relevant to all stakeholder groups:
- We will build and maintain membership numbers to meet our annual plan targets, ensuring membership is representative of the population the Trust serves.
- We will communicate effectively and engage with our public members and our staff members, maintaining a two-way dialogue and encouraging more active involvement.
- We will develop an effective and inclusive approach to give our public members and our staff members a voice and opportunities to contribute to the organisation, our services, and plans for the future.
