The Trust’s consultation period for its Foundation Trust application ended on June 18.
The Trust board will be presented with consultation feedback this month, and will formally consider it in July.
An application will then be made to the Secretary of State for Health (SoSH). If SoSH and the independent regulator, Monitor, agree, the hospital hopes to become a Foundation Trust by early 2011.
The Trust is making good progress with its membership recruitment, but encourages all those interested in its work to join online
Stephen Cox, head of communications at Great Ormond Street Hospital said: “We are very grateful for the feedback and comments received from patient support groups, community groups, patients, parents and staff, throughout the consultation period.”
