Foundation Trust members urged to stand for election

14 August 2008

Nominations are now being invited for members of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to stand for election to 2 vacant seats on its Members’ Council.

Nominations are now being invited for members of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to stand for election to 2 vacant seats on its Members’ Council.

The vacancies are for the following constituencies:

  • Public members of the Foundation Trust who live in the constituency of Kensington and Chelsea Area 1
  • Public members of the Foundation Trust who live in the constituency of Kensington and Chelsea Area 2

Foundation Trust members in these constituencies are invited to nominate themselves as candidates in the forthcoming election.

As a Foundation Trust, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is more accountable to the local community and its staff through its membership – which now totals more than 13,000 - and the Members’ Council.

Members’ Council representatives work with the Board of Directors as a ‘critical friend’, helping to shape the way the Trust develops its services.

The Council has 34 members and the Chairman including 10 patient members, 8 public members (2 each from the boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth and City of Westminster) and 6 staff members drawn from all areas of the hospital. It also includes 10 representatives from partnership organisations.
