Governors and membership

As a Foundation Trust we have more freedom to develop our services for the benefit of patients and give local people a greater say in how we do this.

We are accountable to local people and our staff through our membership, and to our regulator Monitor.

You can become a member of the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals. It’s free and is a great opportunity to find out more about your local hospitals and to tell us your views.

Our members are represented by a Council of Governors, which includes representatives from staff and key partners in health and social care.
