Chairman's Bulletin January 2013


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

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year. We are currently in the middle of our first working groups of the year and I look forward to hearing about the work you are doing at our Council of Governors meeting next month.

The Trafford Strategic Programme Board (TSPB) that oversees the 'new health deal' redesign project has put forward a formal recommendation to NHS Greater Manchester that the proposed redesign of these local hospital services should go ahead. The Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee's (JOSC) response was also reviewed and considered.  The TSPB felt that it was able to address any concerns of the JOSC, which incorporated issues raised by both Trafford and Manchester's health scrutiny committees, and that its final recommendation to continue with the proposals should go ahead.

Along with our Chief Executive, Mike Deegan, I was delighted to host the annual gala dinner for the We're Proud of You awards. All the Winners and Highly Commended entrants were invited to the event which showcased some of the fantastic work being undertaken by staff from all job types and levels across the entire Trust. It was humbling to hear about the work of individuals and teams going the extra mile.

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.
