Foundation Trust Members Zone

Welcome to the Members Zone.

Become a Member

Each Foundation Trust has a membership of local people, like you, who have an interest in how the Trust is run and developed in the future. We are keen to enlist your support in helping to shape the development of our Ambulance Service Trust.

Anyone over the age of 16 who lives in the West Midlands can become a member. Membership costs nothing and you can join more than one Foundation Trust if you would like to. You must, however, live within their catchment area.  As a member, you can be involved as little or as much as you choose and in a variety of different ways.

There are two types of membership:

Level 1

You will receive information from the Trust about our activities, current projects and initiatives and also our services.  This will be fairly brief but informative.

Level 2

Level Two membership is more active and enables you to have more of a say in how we address patient needs. You will be given a chance to attend seminars and take part in focus groups and surveys as well as playing an active role in shaping our decision-making.

Level Two members may also want to consider standing for election as a Governor.  All members have a vote as to who represents them as a Governor on the Council of Governors.  The Council of Governors works closely with the Trust Board to represent members views, contribute ideas, advice and provide a link with our communities.
