Do you want to shape the future of hospital care?

Joining us  as a member will give you a crucial voice in designing healthcare services for where you live and help us to continue to improve care and services for patients. 

Our members play a particularly important role in the democratic make-up of the Trust, being able to vote for and stand for election to a Council of Governors which influences decisions about proposed changes to services and future plans.

Membership Benefits

Becoming a member is completely free and a great way to increase your understanding of your local healthcare system. Membership means we can communicate directly with you – the people and communities we serve. You will be kept up to date with the latest developments and news  from our hospitals in Chelmsford, Maldon and Braintree. You will also be invited along to events that might interest you. 

Who can join?

Anyone can become a member as long as you live in England and are 16 or over. Sign up as a member for free!

By becoming a member you will:

  • be invited to special members’ events
  • be invited to the annual members' meeting
  • be able to elect a council of governors to represent your interests 
  • be able to stand for election as a governor of the Trust. 

You can be involved as much or as little as you like – it’s up to you.

We want to build up our membership to make sure that we are working closely with our communities and that you have a real say about changes that affect you.
