How To Become an ELFT Foundation Trust Member
Welcome to the Trust members area
The Trust gained Foundation Trust Status in November 2007 and since then many members of the public, many of them patients, service users and carers have signed up to become members.
Foundation Trust Membership
Foundation Trusts are a specific type of NHS Trust. Foundation Trusts have a duty to engage with their local communities and encourage local people to become members. They are still a part of the National Health Service but have more autonomy in return for local accountability.
