Public invited to our Annual Members’ Meeting

Members of the public from Harrogate District and beyond are invited to join Governors and senior leaders from Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust at its Annual Members’ Meeting on Tuesday 13 September.

The meeting is an opportunity to look back and celebrate our achievements in 2015/16 and to continue the journey together, looking ahead at ‘What Matters to You’ for the coming year. Presentations will feature updates from the Council of Governors, the Trust’s Chairman Sandra Dodson and Chief Executive Ros Tolcher.

There will be table discussions giving you the chance to get involved and talk about the strong progress made to date with the New Care Models project, as well as next steps and vision for the future. This project provides access to 24/7 prevention, advice, and information for individuals who need support. It is designed to transform how care is provided in each part of the local system, with new ways of working in GP practices, community, and hospital based services.

The Annual Report and Accounts will also be formally received.

The meeting takes place from 6-8pm with registration, tea and coffee from 5.30pm in the Cedar Suite, Cedar Court Hotel, Park Parade, Harrogate, HG1 5AH. Click here to book a free place: http://bit.ly/2caNE7T

Sandra Dodson, Chairman of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The past year has been really positive for the Trust. Some highlights include successfully winning the contracts to deliver Healthy Child Programme services in County Durham, Darlington and Middlesbrough, receiving a very positive ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission and in February we were delighted to welcome His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall to our Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

“I hope to see as many people as possible at the meeting to hear about their local NHS services and take part in the discussion about future challenges. It’s a really good opportunity to meet Governors, senior Trust colleagues and partners from other provider trusts, local authority colleagues and our commissioners.”
