Chairman's Bulletin October 2013

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

October has been an extremely busy month for us all with our Annual Members' Meeting which was very successful and well attended and I would like to forward a special thank you to those Governors that came to show your support. The theme of the meeting was 'Proud to Care for You' and our staff ran health information stands showcasing the innovative and high quality care provided by all our hospitals and community services. Our outgoing Lead Governor Malcolm Chiswick addressed the attendees highlighting our achievements over the last year and how we are responding to feedback from patients, staff and Governors to further improve our services.  

We have also had our final Council of Governors' meeting of the year where our new Governors were formally welcomed. Congratulations were also offered to our new Lead Governor Keith Paver. At this meeting, we received some presentations which included the Trust's Internal Quality Reviews which are currently taking place throughout the organisation  in addition to a safeguarding presentation by our Director of Nursing for Adults, Cheryl Lenney which was requested by Governors at a previous meeting. We were also given an update on our Manchester Academic Health Sciences Centre (MAHSC) application and our Living Longer, Living Better Programme.

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.
