The trust now has more than 10,000 members ‘Active and Involved’ in Leeds Community Healthcare. Members are the voice of the population cared for by us and are vital in ensuring the trust achieves the vision of providing the best possible healthcare to every community. Membership is free, and you can be involved as much or as little as you like. Signing up as a member is a simple a way for us to contact you with news, updates and opportunities.
You can sign up here. Don’t forget to tell us if you use LCH services how you would like to get involved so we can send you the most relevant opportunities.
In this section you will find lots of ways to be involved in Leeds Community Healthcare through our ‘Surveys’ and ‘Ongoing opportunities’ pages, as well as finding how your involvement has already had an impact through report on our Member’s Zone.
We have introduced a new involvement toolkit following feedback from our members around what you need from us to help you be ‘Active and Involved’. In this toolkit you can find practical information and guidance you may need when attending involvement activities.
If you have any further ideas on how we can best support the public to be involved in the trust, get in touch with the team.
Leeds Community Healthcare values the time, skills and commitment that volunteers and members make to our services. To claim out of pocket expenses, or to find out if you are eligible for reimbursement from your involvement activity, please see our expenses claim form here.
If you would like to speak to the team about the approach, or talk to us one to one about your involvement, we’d be happy to do so.
The key below is used in our ‘Active and Involved’ bulletin to let you know details about the different involvement activities so you can make appropriate arrangements. Please see what each of the images we use means below.
As part of our aim to keep our communications as simple as possible, and to help those involved navigate through the wonderful world of NHS terminology, we have introduced our jargon alert!
If you spot something either on our website or in our bulletin, whether it is overcomplicated language or an indecipherable abbreviation, let us know!
