Foundation trusts are NHS organisations accountable to the public through their membership. It means we are able to make better and more flexible use of our money, helping to plan for future investments, supporting developments, and improving local services.
Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has more than 12,500 members who provide a local voice and have a say on how the hospital is run.
People and staff from all walks of life become members. They elect the Council of Governors and help shape hospital services in Barnsley for the benefit of local people.
We consult with members for their opinions through patient and public involvement work. Read our Membership & Engagement Strategy to find out more about our aims and ambitions.
How much members get involved is entirely up to them.
Who can become a member?
Anyone can become a member so long as they are at least 14 years old.
