Members' Survey 2020

As a member of the Trust you can voice your opinion on local services and future developments, attend special events, stand as a governor and receive special members’ discounts. With this in mind, every couple of years we ask you to complete a survey to help develop our future plans. I would be grateful if you could take a few minutes of your time to complete our short survey by following the link below.

Patient Representatives Needed!

Every NHS patient should be cared for with compassion and dignity in a clean, safe environment. Where standards fall short they need to be reported so they can be improved.  PLACE assessments take place each year and it is your opportunity to get involved as a Patient Assessor to help drive improvements in the care environment. 

You will receive training to carry out the assessment. Travel and parking expenses will be refunded back to you and you will be provided with refreshments throughout the day and lunch where available.

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at

Information and updates about our services can be found on this website here.

As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
