The Provision of Mental Health Services in Hertfordshire
Online talk by Barry Canterford

Wednesday, April 21st at 7.00pm by Zoom


Dear Member,

The Trust invites you to an online talk on mental health issues during the pandemic and how these are being met locally by the Hertfordshire NHS Foundation Trust.  The full details are attached, including how you can register for the talk.  We very much hope you will take part in this important discussion and we are very grateful that Barry, the Public Governor to the Foundation Trust, has been able to find time to talk to us.

The provision of Mental Health Services has been rising up the health and care agendas for some years and its importance has been further emphasised by people’s experience of the uncertainties and reduced personal contacts created by the pandemic. 

Barry will talk about some of the history of mental health provision in Hertfordshire, the delivery of mental health services by the Hertfordshire NHS Foundation Trust, and his role as the elected Public Governor to the Foundation Trust since 2013.  He will talk for about 40 minutes followed by a Question and Answer session.
To register for the talk please click here and fill in your details. Only one registration is required per device that will access the Zoom meeting. (For example, if two people are planning to take part in the meeting, sharing a laptop or tablet, then only one registration is required).

The joining details for the Zoom meeting will be sent out on the 20th April to those people who have registered.

If you have any queries about the event please email
