Members of the public from across Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven are invited to join governors and senior staff members at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Annual Members Meeting on Tuesday 18 September, at Bradford City Football Club.

The meeting will be an opportunity for members of the public to meet their local elected Trust governors, and speak to staff members from services across the Trust including learning disabilities, mental health, community healthcare and children’s services, to learn more about the work they do in the organisation’s hospitals and local communities.

At the meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the Trust’s achievements over the last 12 months and its plans for the future. People will also be able to put their own questions to the Trust Board and give their views about its services.

The public will be able to meet new Chief Executive, Brent Kilmurray, who joined the Trust in August; Brent will join the rest of the Board to answer questions from the public.

There will be a number of stalls at the event, where attendees can get more information about what each team does to support or deliver quality care to the community, as well as watch videos and take part in quizzes and other interactive activities.

Paul Hogg, the Trust’s Director of Corporate Affairs, said: “Our annual members’ meeting is a chance for people in our communities to speak to staff and governors from the Trust. We welcome anyone who has an interest in how we deliver our services, whether they are currently using our services or not, to come along, ask questions, and learn more about the work we do.”

The event will take place at Bradford City Football Club, Valley Parade, BD8 7DY, on Tuesday 18 September, 10:30am to 12:30pm. People wishing to attend can book a place, or submit a question to the Trust Board, by emailing or calling 01274 363552.  For those that cannot attend, responses to any questions raised will be published at after the event.
