In return, Trust members get:
Complete an application to become a member.
It’s free and you have no obligations.
Royal Surrey’s membership is made up of our staff and members of the public.
Anyone over the age of 14 can become a member. If you are under the age of 18, your membership enrolment form will require a completed parental consent form.
Members help the Trust develop services that will best suit the needs of the people we serve. The Trust is supported by our Governors, who have a primary responsibility to represent the interests of the Trust members who elect them, as well as other members of the public.
Our Governors act as a medium for constituents and lead communications from the Trust to the public. They provide an important link between the hospital and the local community, they reflect members' interests and work on their behalf to improve health services for the future.
Our Membership Engagement Strategy 2022-2024 describes the purpose of our membership, as well as the Trust’s objectives, aims and priorities for our membership.
