Two ladies talking to a member of staffWho can become a member?

Membership of the Foundation Trust is absolutely free and is open to patients, the public and NHS staff. Becoming a Foundation Trust member shows that you are interested in the hospital and its future. As at the end of 2015 we had  7200 public members and our Membership and Communication Committee continues to work to maintain and increase this figure to demonstrate that:

  • our membership represents the local population, and
  • we have enough members from which to elect a Governorsí Council

Membership is open to most people over the age of 16 living or working within our catchment area, which is principally:

  • West Norfolk,
  • part of Breckland and North Norfolk
  • part of northern Cambridgeshire, and
  • part of south-east Lincolnshire

Membership is also open to people who live outside the area but are, or have been, patients or carers at The QEH.

Members of staff

Because we appreciate and value our staff, they are automatically members of the Foundation Trust and do not need to apply. If you are a member of staff and you do not wish to be a member of the Foundation Trust you can choose to opt out. A staff member who has opted-out cannot apply to become a public member. (Please contact the FT Office on 01553 613142 for further information about staff membership).
