Chairman's Bulletin August 2011

Banner Image

Welcome to August's e-bulletin which gives Governors news and information about our Trust and what is going on in the NHS. 

We are very pleased to have been selected by the Board of Trafford Healthcare NHS Trust as their preferred partner to take forward the future development of local hospital services for the people of Trafford. The next stage of the formal process will involve us in negotiations over the detailed terms of the acquisition to ensure that the interests of patients are protected and the provisions of local hospital services remains stable during the transition period.

We also look forward to now working closely with staff in Trafford, developing strong plans which will ensure that together we can provide the highest quality health services for the people of Trafford.

Our theme of the Annual Members Meeting which takes place on Tuesday 27th September 2011 from 1.00 pm to 5.00 pm, is "Stay Well" in Education South (Postgraduate Centre). Presentations will be from 1.30 pm to 2.30 pm. This will give our new staff in Community Services a perfect forum in which to showcase their work. There will be an opportunity to learn about good health and preventing illness.

Members will be able to vote on the constitutional changes and I am very grateful to the governors on the membership working group who have worked with us to navigate the existing constitution and develop a set of proposed changes. You will also have the opportunity to hear about achievements of the past year and plans for the coming year. I would really like to see an even better turnout of governors this year for this very important event.

If there is anything I can do to assist you in your role as a Governor, please contact me on 0161 276 8661 or at peter.mount@cmft.nhs.uk.
