Health bus to go out in search of NHS trust members

A health trust that provides services in Rotherham, Doncaster and North Lincolnshire is reaching out to its local communities and urging residents who have an interest in their health service to become members.

Staff and governors of Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) will be on board the Health Bus visiting the following locations:

Rotherham – April 9 from 10am to 4pm – Parkgate Shopping Park, Stadium Way, Rotherham S60 1TG

Scunthorpe – April 10 from 10am to 4pm  – Tesco Extra, Gallagher Park, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe DN15 8GR

Doncaster – April 12 from 10am to 4pm  –  Lakeside Village, White Rose Way, Doncaster DN4 5PJ on April 12 at 10am to 4pm.

Local people will have an opportunity to come and meet staff and governors and find out more about membership ahead of the RDaSH Governor elections which start in the Autumn.

Cheryl Watkinson, RDaSH Membership and Governor Support, said: “We are very excited about this visit and hope that residents will come along and hop on board the Health Bus.  Join us for a chat and find out why being an RDaSH member is important. If you use our services or are a carer, a friend, local resident or someone who has an interest in the services we provide please call in and see us.”

Membership is free to anyone over the age of 16 years living in or who has used the services of RDaSH in any of the areas. Trust members will be able to vote in Governor Elections and put themselves forward to stand as future governors and represent their community on the Council of Governors.
