Foundation Trust membership

Be part of our future

Oxford University Hospitals wants you to take part in our future - whether you are a patient, a carer, live in the area we serve, are a volunteer in our hospitals or work for us.

Anyone aged 16 or over living in England and Wales can become a member.

We aim to recruit and develop a membership which fairly represents people living in the communities served by the Trust.

This includes patients, former patients, carers and members of the public, particularly in Oxfordshire, but also from further afield including Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Gloucestershire.

We also provide a wide range of services for people from further afield in England and Wales and people in this wider area are also invited to play their part in our future by joining as members.

Our membership scheme means that you can find out more about our services and plans for the future and can get involved. You have no obligations as a member, but there are lots of ways of getting involved - from voting for candidates to be on our Council of Governors to taking part in events for members, and from receiving member newsletters to standing as a Governor of the Trust.

Membership strategy

Our Membership Strategy (pdf, 79 KB) outlines how the Trust will build a representative membership and engage and involve its members in the development of the Trust's plans and services. We anticipate the Council of Governors reviewing this strategy and its associated actions within OUH's first year of operating as an FT.
