Leonard Shute – Funeral Details

Paul and Linda

Just to let you know my dad Leonard passed away late last night.  Thank you for all the lifts you have given over the last year, I know he much appreciated being able to go to his luncheons.

If you could let the people he had lunch with know I would be very grateful as I do not have contact numbers for them.

Santa’s Grotto Update

Hi Stuart,

It was my pleasure to present Beryl and Norah and their volunteers with a cheque for £250 to send of to Santa to help him pay for the presents for the children he was to meet at CHAP’s annual Christmas Market.

Paul and were delighted to have  been able to help Santa in these times of austerity when every penny counts.

We were lucky to have had the time to visit the market and see the happy smiling faces of the children as they waited to see Santa.

Well done to Beryl, Norah, Brian and everyone else who made the event so successful.

Kind regards and blessings  Lynda and Paul Cromie

Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust – Cllr Paul Cromie

Subject: Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, Quality Goal Setting.

 Hi Cllr’s,

As you know, I am one of the Bradford South Public Governors for Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust (BDCFT).  Part of my role as Governor is to help the Trust to gather the views of the membership and members of the public in regard to the services BDCFT offers.

BDCFT are a provider of award winning mental health, learning disabilities and community health services across Bradford, Airedale and Craven. More information about BDCFT can be found at

Currently, BDCFT are considering what their quality goals should be to develop their plan for 2016/17, and I am e-mailing to ask if you may be willing to take part in a survey to give your views on what their quality goals should be. 

Also, I would be much obliged if you could perhaps pass this message on to anyone else you know who may wish to contribute and who lives in the Bradford, Airedale and Craven areas.  Anyone can contribute, whether they are a service user, carer or simply a resident in the area with an interest in improving the available services. 

Here is an excerpt of a message that has been sent out to trust membership which includes a link to the survey for those who may wish to take part.

“What are Quality Goals?

Quality Goals are reviewed and set by the Trust on an annual basis. Achievement of the Goals leads to improved quality, safety and experience for people that use our services. The findings from the survey will help us to determine our Quality Goals for 2016/17.

We will publish the Quality Goals in our annual Quality Report, monitor them throughout the year and report on our progress in the next annual Quality Report.

We would be delighted if you could share your views with us by completing our survey which is available via this link:

Please would you complete the survey by Thursday, 31 December 2015”.

Thank you in advance for your time.

My best wishes,
