We're engaging - watch our videos here!

The pandemic has meant that we have had to find other ways to engage with our members and the obvious way in the 21st Century is on YouTube!

Last year we were able to produce two videos which we then posted on YouTube. The first video, ‘Life during the pandemic and beyond’, features our lead governor, Stephen Baines, and John Gledhill, one of our publicly elected governors (Lindley and the Valleys). They are joined by special guest Zebi Deluce, a paediatric physiotherapist, who describes her experience of being deployed to ICU.

The second video, ‘Thank you from CHFT’s governors…and Amy’s story’, again features Stephen Baines and this time he’s joined by Sheila Taylor, public governor for Huddersfield Central. The special guest for this video is Amy Booth, a trainee nursing associate who describes working on a COVID ward while she undertakes her training.

Both videos give an insight into what it is like for frontline staff working during the pandemic and we are very thankful that we have wonderful staff who are meeting daily challenges in such difficult conditions. To watch the videos please click on the links below:
