Chairman's Bulletin July 2011

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

I recently attended a celebration event to mark the completion of an innovative scheme which aims to provide diverse and sustainable opportunities that support young people with disabilities through skills training and potential employment. Project Search is a 12 month project that provides on the job training opportunities, leading to permanent opportunities through a series of three 10 week internships. I am so proud to be associated with such a wonderful venture. Disability is not inability and we have opportunities for everyone in our organisation.

Our second Young People's Health Event took place at the end of June and was extremely successful almost 300 young people coming though the doors to learn all about NHS careers and health promotion. Trust staff ran stands covering a wide range of careers, including nursing, midwifery, pharmacy and physiotherapy.  There were also interactive sessions on resuscitation and infection control, plus information about staying healthy, and an opportunity to find out about the latest medical research.

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.
