Chairman's Bulletin June 2013

Chairman's Bulletin June 13

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

I attended the Young People's Event on Tuesday 25th June and it was great to see so many enthusiastic young people attending.  Over the course of the day we had over 300 visitors who all showed a keen interest in talking to our staff manning the 27 stands and finding out more about the work we do here.

The next round of my lunch sessions begin next week and we have a whole host of interesting presentations to look forward to.  Please check that you have the dates in your diary and I look forward to seeing you there. Rhona Bradley will be covering this for me during my holiday.

While we are talking about diaries, please ensure you have the afternoon of Tuesday 1st October marked down as this is the date of this year's Annual Members' Meeting.

I'd like to finish off by marking Friday 5th July as it is the 65th Anniversary of the NHS.  This marked a key date in our organisation's history especially for Trafford General Hospital where the official launch of the NHS took place back in 1948.  Our history dates back many decades before this and you can find out more about our organisation's history on our website: /your-trust/our-history.aspx

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.
