Patients and local residents can now sign up for membership of the proposed new Barts and The London NHS foundation trust. Membership is an opportunity to show your support for our hospitals and play a part in their futures.

NHS foundation trusts are a new kind of organisation with stronger links to local communities and greater independence to develop services in line with the needs of local people and patients. As a foundation trust, we will be accountable via elected representatives to our members, who will be patients or their carers, members of the local community and hospital staff.
