"Being a part of King’s has been a great experience. I was recently a patient and the service was excellent, and now I want to give something back."

Become a Member

As a Foundation Trust, King’s has a membership made up of local people, patients and staff. Being a Member gives you more say in how your local hospital is run.

We count on our Members for feedback, local knowledge, fundraising and support as well as to vote for Governors who represent Members’ interests. In return, you have the chance to find out more about our hospital and get involved in activities to help improve services and our local communities.

To be a Member, you must be 16 or older and answer 'yes' to at least one of the questions below.

  • I live in Lambeth, Southwark, Bromley or Lewisham.
  • I have been an outpatient, inpatient, attended A&E or a carer of a patient of King’s (Denmark Hill, Princess Royal University Hospital or Orpington Hospital) in the past six years.
  • I work at King’s – employees can become Staff Members.

Get your voice heard and make a difference: sign up to become a Member.
