Foundation trust support
Sussex Community NHS Trust has received overwhelming support for its plans to become a foundation trust.
The NHS organisation, which is responsible for delivering community services in this area, held a formal consultation with the public earlier this year.
Eight-two per cent of people either ‘strongly agreed’ or ‘agreed’ in supporting the trust’s proposals.
The trust’s next step is to recruit 5,000 public members by October 2014. Find out how to become a member at:www.sussexcommunity.nhs.uk/ft
