Posted on: Thursday 29 Oct 2015

The next quarterly public meeting of the Council of Governors of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT) will take place on Wednesday 4 November at 5.45pm at St. Aidan’s Church of England High School, Oatlands Drive, Harrogate, HG2 8JR (in the Hatcher Room, next to Constance Green Hall).

Sandra Dodson, HDFT Chairman, said: “We would be delighted to welcome members of the public to our quarterly Council of Governor meeting to see presentations from the Council of Governors and senior Trust executives and have the opportunity to ask questions about aspects of the Trust’s forward strategy, quality of service and operational performance.

“Our Governors represent the interests of the Trust members and the general public we serve and this public meeting provides the opportunity to see them in action and engage with them both formally and informally.”

Items on the agenda include an update from the Chief Executive on key issues and the Trust’s fundamental standards of care, performance and finance, a review of the effectiveness of Quality of Care Teams by the Chief Nurse and an update from a Non-Executive Director on the Finance Committee. Governors will be talking about key areas of work they are involved in and there will be a Q&A session for members of the public and Governors.

HDFT welcomes the participation of any member of the public at the meeting and questions may be sent in advance by email to [email protected] or by telephone to the Foundation Trust Office on 01423 554489. Questions can also be tabled to the Chairman at the beginning of the meeting or during the mid-meeting break.
