Join our Trust and become a member

It is important to us that we have a membership that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve, to help us meet the needs of our local community, our patients and our staff.

Joining University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust gives you the opportunity to support and get involved at one of the busiest trusts in the country. You can have a say in how UCLH develops and help shape the future of our Trust.
