Jonathan Djanogly visits aspiring Community NHS Foundation Trust


2nd March 2011

On Friday 25 February, Jonathan Djanogly, MP for Huntingdon visited Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust’s musculoskeletal physiotherapy department, met staff and patients, and signed up to become a member of its aspirant community NHS Foundation Trust.

Amanda Phillips, Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust said: “We are delighted Mr Djanogly was able to visit our physiotherapy department. We were able to show him our face to face physiotherapy services including the gym and treatment area at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, as well as our award-winning Physio Direct service.

“It was a great opportunity for staff to meet their local MP and talk about the innovative services we are developing to assist people with musculoskeletal problems – which are a major cause of morbidity in the population and a leading cause of days lost from work.”

Victor Lucas, Chairman, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust who accompanied Mr Djanogly said: “We welcome Mr Djanogly’s visit today and his support for our ambitious plans for the future.

“We launched our public consultation in January to become one of the country’s first community NHS Foundation Trusts and I am absolutely delighted to welcome Mr Djanogly as a member.

“Central to our Foundation Trust bid is a membership predominantly made up of local people and staff who would have a major influence on how we provide community health and social care to children and adults in the future.”

Mr Djanogly said: “I was delighted to meet the Physiotherapy team and see and hear about how they are developing community physiotherapy services. Huntingdon residents are benefitting from the work the team have put into reviewing how services can be locally accessible to give the best possible care.

“I commend the Trust for their commitment to engaging local people through this public consultation and am delighted to sign up as a member.

“I would encourage Huntingdon residents to take this opportunity to have a real say in their local community health and social care services.”
