Our members make us stronger

As a member of Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, your views can help to influence developments and improvements in our services.

Our patient surveys show that residents are highly satisfied with the care and treatment provided at Poole but as a member, you will have more opportunity to be involved in the trust, and to have your say. 

We are accountable to our members through our elected governors. All members can vote in governor elections, and can put themselves forward to become a governor and represent others in their local area.

You, your family or friends may have come to Poole Hospital as a visitor, a booked or emergency patient, or as a carer and will have first-hand experience of the service Poole Hospital provides to the community.

Please take a moment and consider how important your membership is to Poole Hospital - and become a member, it won't cost you a penny! You can become a member if you are aged 12 or over and live in England. If you work for us  you automatically are a member and don't need to fill in a form.

If you are already a member of another foundation trust - you can join us too.

  • Show your support for the hospital
