Get involved in North Bristol NHS Trust

Monday, 8 July 2013

There are lots of ways you can get involved with your local healthcare services at North Bristol NHS Trust.

Patient feedback

Here are two of the latest opportunities to volunteer for North Bristol NHS Trust.

The Trust is looking for volunteers to talk to patients or their carers and families to gather their valuable feedback about the care they receive from us.

This is a great opportunity if you are good with people and would like some experience of working in a hospital.

Training and expenses are provided and the volunteer role is available during weekedays, evenings and weekends.

To find out more please contact Juliet Winter, Patient & Community Engagement Manager, on 0117 3236546 or email juliet.winter@nbt.nhs.uk

Become a Foundation Trust member

Get involved and be part of ensuring we deliver exceptional patient care today and in the future by becoming a Foundation Trust member of North Bristol NHS Trust. 

We intend to become a foundation trust and believe this will help us to improve the delivery of healthcare in a way that benefits the people we serve as a local and specialist healthcare provider.

The key difference is that local people - you - will have a real say in running the local hospitals and community health services by becoming members of the Trust and representing local views by becoming and/or electing governors.

Membership is free and as a member you decide how involved you’d like to be.

  • Receive all the latest news about what’s happening across the Trust and the work we do
  • Attend exclusive foundation trust membership events and open days
  • Get a first look behind the scenes of the new building development at Southmead and Frenchay
  • Be asked about changes and improvements to your health services
  • Help out in the hospitals as a volunteer
  • Get involved in fundraising activities
  • Take part in research or help access and check patient care on the wards or in the clinics
  • Gain access to NHSDiscounts.com
  • Stand for election as a foundation trust Governor
  • Cast your vote in the election of the foundation trust Board of Governors

This month, we are visiting North Somerset to hold a series of events to where you can find out more about being a foundation trust member. Please come along to any of these events and talk to our team about becoming a member of North Bristol NHS Trust.
