Changes to your membership details or cancelling your membership

Public Members

As part of the membership application process, the Department of Health asks NHS Foundation Trusts to capture information in relation to ethnicity, language and disability status so that we can be sure that we are representing all sections of our communities. We therefore ask membership applicants to disclose this information during the application process with all information collected being confidential, in keeping with Data Protection Rules and is not released to third parties. If the information that you supplied as part of your initial membership application process has changed or changes in the future, please contact the Foundation Trust Membership Office (details above).

If you are an existing public member and would like to cancel your membership, please contact the Foundation Trust Membership Office (details above).

Staff Members

We automatically enroll our staff as members upon joining the Trust as we are confident that you will want to play an active role in developing better quality services for both patients and staff. Staff can however opt out upon request to the Foundation Trust Membership Office (details above).

Staff information that is received/collected is treated with the strictest of confidence, in keeping with Data Protection rules, not being released to third parties and is only processed and used to contact you about the Trust’s Membership and other related issues.

Please be aware that staff membership information is stored separately to the Trust’s Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and if any your personal details change, please contact the Foundation Trust Membership Office, as well as notifying your Line Manager to update ESR.

Help us to reduce our carbon footprint

Our Trust has an action plan to reduce our carbon footprint and save valuable natural resources. One of our sustainability commitments is to reduce the number of documents that we print, and we hope that members will help us to achieve this.

If you are happy to receive future membership information by email, please contact the Foundation Trust Membership Office (details above) and provide us with your email address. With your help we can put sustainability at the heart of everything that we do.
