Become a member and be part of our story!

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital is one of 151 foundation trusts in England. One of the things that is unique to foundation trusts is membership; at ROH we have a membership made up of local people and patients. We count on our members for feedback, local knowledge, fundraising and support. Members are also eligible to vote on electing Governors who represent their interests.

What does a member do?

The role of a member is flexible; you can get involved as much or as little as you like, whether it's filling in an online survey, sharing your ideas, coming to events or volunteering. Your involvement helps connect us with our community and your feedback can help us improve the care we give.

What is a Foundation Trust?

Being a foundation trust means that ROH is better able to provide and manage its services to meet the needs and priorities of the local community.
