University Hospitals Bristol Nhs Foundation Trust Recruits Its 10000Th Member

 28 January 2009

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust has recruited its 10,000th Foundation Trust member.

Jack Roberts, aged eight, from Portishead, thought it was cool to be the 10,000th member to sign up, and couldnt wait to tell his friends.

As a Foundation Trust the organisation is encouraging a real, representative cross-section of the community to become members.  Membership includes the opportunity to be involved in shaping future Trust plans, and to have a say in developing and improving the services it provides.

The Trust is hoping to recruit more young people and is holding its first Foundation Trust event for younger members - My Hospitals, My Say on Saturday 31 January. The event is sponsored by Above and Beyond Charities. Young members will be asked how they want to be involved in the Trust and what issues are important to them.

Maria Fox, Membership Manager for the Trust, says: Recruiting our 10,000th member is such a great achievement - over 10,000 people now are able to have a say in the service our eight hospitals provide. University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust is committed to reflect the diverse and vibrant City we serve, and its important that people of all ages and backgrounds get involved to help us to provide the best service and care possible.

There are three easy ways to join the Foundation Trust as a member: visit the Trust web site, email or telephone 0117 342 3764.
