Become a trust member
Do you want to be more connected and involved with your local hospital?
Membership is a wonderful way of strengthening your bond with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, which covers Barnet, Chase Farm, and Royal Free hospitals – and it’s free to join!
Why sign up?
Becoming a member is a wonderful way to develop your relationship with your local hospital and increase your understanding of the local health economy.
Membership means the Royal Free London can communicate directly with you – the people and communities we serve. You will be kept up to date with the latest developments and news from the three hospitals we cover. You will also be invited to events aimed at informing and engaging you. You may also be asked to give feedback on your experience at the Royal Free London.
Who can join?
You can become a member of the Royal Free London if you live in England, are 16 or over, or are a carer for a patient that is under 16 years old. Sign up as a member for free!
By becoming a member, you will:
- receive monthly membership updates including our Freepress newsletter
- be invited to medicine for members events
- be invited to the annual members' meeting
- elect a council of governors to represent your interests
- be able to stand for election as a governor of the trust
You can be involved as much or as little as you like – it’s up to you!
If you are a permanent or contracted member of staff, you automatically become a member of the trust and therefore do not have to complete the online form. If you are working on the bank or are a volunteer at any of our hospitals, you will need to sign up online.
