Patients & public welcomed to health roadshow

Roadshow shape NHS care, join up free, elect a governor

8:52am 13th March 2018

A roadshow in Aylesbury today is asking patients, NHS staff and the public to all get involved in how healthcare is delivered.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust is holding an event at the Whiteleaf Centre on Bierton Road between 10:00am and 13:00pm, as part of a series of nine roadshow events.

The roadshow promotes awareness for Oxford Health's governor elections and membership, encouraging patients, carers, colleagues and the public to join and help mould the future of healthcare provision in the counties it serves.

Voting in the Council of Governors election, is limited to members of the trust. Membership registration is free and can be done online at any time or while attending one of the roadshow events.

Any member may nominate themselves to be a governor.

The trust Council of Governors join discussions alongside the Board of Directors, representing the views of members in their constituency.

They are made up of the public, staff, patients and carers. There are 10 governor vacancies to be filled at this year's election in the spring.

Oxford Health's Community Involvement Manager, Julie Pink said:

"The roadshow is a great way to find out more about how you can get involved in the trust and have a voice in healthcare service provision. I would encourage people to come down and speak to us, get involved and sign up as a member of their trust.

"Membership is free and as Oxford Health provides services as diverse as those based in community hospitals and mental health services, school nurses, speech and language therapy, health visitors, dentistry, and talking therapies it is likely that nearly everyone in our region has a stake in the future of the trust.

"By voting for a governor, or volunteering to stand as a governor themselves, individuals are able shape the future of our trust and have their voices heard on important local healthcare topics. Your involvement makes a huge difference and the first step is joining up."

More details about our membership and how to join are available on https://www.oxfordhealth.nhs.uk/about-us/foundation-trust/
