Chairman's Bulletin May 2011


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

I recently attended the official opening of the £20 million Manchester Health Academy. Former British triple jumper and Olympic champion Jonathan Edwards dropped in to chat to pupils at the Wythenshawe-based academy. He spent time with the pupils, passing on his own experiences and advice on making it to the top of his sport. We are the lead sponsor of Manchester Health Academy which is making good progress and was recently classified as 'good' by OFSTED.  David Cain, Director of Regeneration and Charities, hosted the event as Chairman of the Health Academy Trust and Humphrey Bear proved a great hit with the kids!

Plans are well underway for our second Young People's Health Event on Wednesday 29th June. Last year's was extremely successful and we would urge your support on the day.

You will have no doubt seen our new website which we are very pleased with. We are asking governors to act as a 'critical friend' to the communications team who are responsible for maintaining and updating the website. If you are interested, please contact Donna Beddows.

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.
