Foundation Trust Membership

As a Foundation Trust, we are still part of the NHS but independent from the Department of Health and directly accountable to our local community. This means we give greater say in how we’re run to local people, staff and all those who use our services, including patients, their families and carers.

Our Members reflect these groups and help us ensure that we are providing the very best service we can – a service built around the needs of the community.

Members are represented by elected Governors who sit on the Council of Governors. They play a key role in shaping the strategic direction and governance of The Royal Marsden.


As a Foundation Trust we are accountable to our local community, patients and staff, who all have the right to become Members.
