Become a Member Over 8,300 local people are backing our bid to become a Foundation Trust. You can do this too by completing our online membership form and becoming a member today. The best part is… it's FREE! What do members do? In becoming a member you are supporting us - your local ambulance service, just like Maxicus, pictured. When you join, you tell us how involved you want to be. From simply receiving our magazine 'Lifeline', full of real life patient stories, health information and features on our staff and our service, to taking part in surveys, discussion groups and attending events - the choice is yours! Those who want to get even more involved can stand for election in our Council of Governors. Our Governors will be elected by our Members and represent your voice to the Board of Directors. Why join? As the largest ambulance service in the country, we cover the populations of Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire. We hope that you never have to call upon us, but if you do, wouldn't you like to be able to say that you have helped your ambulance service? Read about the benefits of becoming a member. Who can be a member? Anyone aged 16 and over living in the North West can be a member. The only exceptions are anyone who has been dismissed from our employment or has been involved in an incident of violence or abuse against our staff. There are two categories of membership - public members and staff members. An individual can only belong to one category. Every member will be eligible to elect representatives to our Council of Governors. Join us now! Our online membership form is available here..
