Membership allows you, our local community, to have social ownership of your NHS Foundation trust.

Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has about 8,000 members and is always keen to recruit more. Joining is simple and a good way to show commitment to your local hospital. Members receive a quarterly update on the Trust, as well as invitations to events taking place at the hospital and in the local community.
