Chairman's Bulletin August 2013

Chairman's Bulletin Aug Banner

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

We are looking forward to receiving the results of the on-going Governor Elections which will be available on 9th September.

This year's Annual Members' Meeting will take place on Tuesday 1st October between 1.00 - 4.00 pm in the Nowgen Centre on Grafton Street (MRI).  I hope to see all of you there.

Thanks to all those Governors who recently attended the Governor session which gave an overview of the organisation's values and behavioural framework.  Your input was greatly appreciated and your suggestions have been taken on board. Further up-dates will be provided at your usual meetings.

As our commitment to carbon reduction I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Gibbs, who joined us as Energy Manager recently. Ian will be planning and monitoring how we use energy across the Trust Estate, and identifying ways in which we can become more efficient.

He will be providing technical advice and support and implementing a number of small, medium and large energy efficiency programmes.  Ian brings with him a wealth of experience from his previous role at the University of Hull.  If you have any Energy Saving tips or suggestions, please contact the Eco Team at ECOteam@cmft.nhs.uk.

I really enjoyed the BBC 2 programme 'The Midwives' which I watched last Tuesday.  It demonstrated the excellent work being done at Saint Mary's of which I am sure they are very proud.  Further details about the programme are below.

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.
