The Royal Surrey County Hospital marked the end of its three month Foundation Trust public consultation with a sign up event at the Guildhall on Guildford High Street on Saturday 31st January.
The event was a huge success with nearly 200 people signing up to become a member of the Royal Surrey Foundation Trust, bringing the membership total to well over 12,500. The day included "How clean are your hands?" tests by the Infection Control team and Fascinating Faces face painters were on hand to decorate the youngsters of Guildford while parents signed up to support the Royal Surrey in its Foundation Trust application. The most popular parts of the day were performances by the Gordon's School Pipes and Drums Band, who twice brought the High Street to a standstill.
Although the three month public consultation stage is now over, people can continue to sign up to become a member of the Royal Surrey Foundation Trust.
Royal Surrey County Hospital Chief Executive Nick Moberly said:
"I would like to thank everyone for all their support so far with our bid to become an NHS Foundation Trust.
"We still have a number of stages to go through before the hospital is granted Foundation Trust status, but the date we are still looking towards is the 1st July 2009. We are very confident and the support we have had from patients and local people has been incredible. The public consultation has been extremely positive and Foundation Trust status means a great deal to our staff and the patients and communities we serve."
People can still sign up on-line by clicking here or by calling 01483 408377 to request a membership form.
