Becoming a member

Anyone who lives in the area, works for the trust, or has been a patient or service user there, can become a member of SLaM. This gives staff and local people a real stake in the future of their hospital.

Members can:

  • receive information about us and be consulted on plans for future development of the trust and its services;
  • elect representatives to serve on the Council of Governors; and
  • stand for election to the Council of Governors.

Keep up to date
There's always something happening at SLaM.  You will receive a monthly members' e-newsletter packed with news, events and interesting features.  You can in turn feature your events that other members will be interested in.

Electing the Governors
Members can elect the Governors who sit on the Council of Governors and help the Board determine our priorities for the future. And as a member you can stand for election yourself (if you are over 16) and make your voice heard.

Council of Governors' bids scheme
Our Council of Governors runs a bids scheme to award up to £750 funding to members who have a good idea that will support patient experience, social inclusion or mental wellbeing.
The current scheme (Smile for Health) is open for applications until 4 July 2014. It is open to all members - encourage your friends to join now! For more information please contact Carol at the membership office on 0203 228 2441 /

Exclusive discount scheme
The scheme offers discounts on over 200 brands, holidays, travel and insurance and financial products in London and surrounding boroughs. This is completely free of charge and in order to benefit from these discounts you simply have to be a member of SLaM and register at (click on the top banner to obtain a gold card to present at participating suppliers).
