To join, please complete our online application form.
What happens next?
Once your application for membership has been processed, you will receive (electronically) our exclusive members’ magazine, Connect, twice a year. This will tell you what’s happening in the hospitals and includes details of how you can take part in Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) activities with the Trust if you would like to.
You can also view previous issues of Connect online to see the variety of topics covered in the Medicine for Members’ talks.
If you have ticked the option to take part in PPI activities, we may ask you to participate in an online survey or telephone interviews to share your views. You might also be invited you to a workshop discussion along with fellow members who have had a similar experience, or have similar opinions to you.
You may also wish to become a volunteer for Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Volunteers are vital in helping the Trust to deliver the best possible care and experience for patients. Working in partnership with paid staff, the activities of our volunteers not only enhance patients’ well-being during their stay, but can directly support their recovery and rehabilitation.
Volunteering creates an important link between the Trust and the local community, allowing people to contribute their time, energy and enthusiasm to a worthwhile cause. Volunteering can also be a great way for people to put their skills and life experience to good use, or help them develop new skills, or build self-esteem and confidence in preparation for paid employment. More information is provided in the volunteering section of the website.
Why not start thinking of ideas about how members could be involved? Contact us and we will look forward to discussing how to make the ideas happen.
