Royal Surrey Foundation Bid

by CllrZoeFranklin on 11 February, 2009

Following the problems the Royal Surrey had a few years ago and the passionate campaign by local people to save the hospital, I am really pleased the their bid for Foundation status is nearing completion.

Foundation status will be of real benefit to local people and all those who use the hospital for a number of reason.

  1. Any financial surplus at the end of a year the Royal Surrey would be able to reinvest it in the work of the hospital – currently they are limited on how it can be spent by the Department of Health
  2. Local people and patients will have more say in how the hospital is run through membership of the Foundation Trust.

I’ve just expressed my interest in joining and trust and would encourage anyone who lives locally or receives regular treatment at the hospital to consider doing so aswell. You can find out more information about the bid at or you can go straight to the membership page at
