Local people encouraged to attend trust's public board meetings

Local people are being encouraged to attend Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust’s public board meetings.   

The role of the trust board is to ensure that the trust delivers high quality healthcare and improves the health of the local population - and members of the public are welcome to attend and observe the meetings.            

The health trust's regular public board meetings are held at alternate venues in the boroughs of Hounslow and Richmond on different months – and provide local people with an opportunity to find out more about the local community NHS trust and the wide range of health services it provides across both boroughs. 

Community health services cover ‘cradle-to-grave’ services that many of us take for granted.  The trust’s wide range of health services enable people to be cared for in their own homes or the local communities where they live - helping people to remain independent and where possible supported within their own homes. 
 
The trust's services also seek to prevent ill-health for people of all ages, promote healthier lifestyles and manage long term conditions – such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes.  You can find out more about the services that the health trust provides at:   www.hrch.nhs.uk/services

Stephen Swords, chairman of Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust said: “The role of our trust board is to ensure that as the local community healthcare provider - we are delivering the highest quality of care for patients and improving the health of local people. The board also oversees the performance of the organisation and monitors the way we deliver our services so that they reflect the needs of the communities we serve across Hounslow and Richmond.
 
“Engaging with and being accountable to the local community we serve is vital to being able to deliver first-rate care for local people. We therefore actively encourage local residents and patients to come along to our public board meetings to hear about our performance and ongoing business; whilst attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions at the beginning of each meeting.”
