The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 13th November was Past District Governor Arthur Jones from the Carnforth Club who came to talk about University Hospitals Morecambe Bay Foundation Trust.
He explained the structure, function and organisation and how the trust works. It allows decisions to be made locally by people who live and work in the area and can hold the Executive Board to account so that local wishes are listened to.
Anyone can become a trust member and can also be elected as a Governor if they so wish. The board is made up of people from all walks of life and includes the general public and staff from many sections of the NHS.
