Foundation Trust Membership Documentation

At Ashford and St. Peter’s we are proud of the excellent care we provide for our patients and of our role as an important local employer.

We are a good organisation, but believe as a Foundation Trust we have the potential to become a great organisation.

We want to provide the best quality care for our patients, an excellent working environment for our staff and the right healthcare services for our local community. We plan to use the benefits of being a Foundation Trust to do this.

We were licenced as a Foundation Trust from December 1st, 2010.

 

NHS Foundation Trusts are membership organisations and are run differently. All the 3,400 staff of Ashford & St. Peter’s are members of the Foundation Trust and members of the public can become members, too. Currently, there are more than 10,000 members in total.

As a NHS Foundation Trust we have greater freedom and scope to provide even better services for our patients and the communities that we serve.

We have greater financial freedom and are now able to keep and invest any money we generate in new services, equipment and buildings. We are able to look at new commercial initiatives and partnerships to support and develop patient care.

You can find out more on our main website as well as how to apply to become a member.

 

In this section we have a summary of useful documentation including newsletters and membership board papers.
