Beaufort and Skipton Health Service held their 16th Annual General Meeting in Skipton recently, the first meeting open to the community in two years, following restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting used the opportunity to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the Health Service’s many achievements throughout the year.
The Health Service was proud to welcome one of their own team members, Nicole Porter (Healthy@Home Coordinator) as the Guest Speaker. Nicole updated attendees on two of the Health Service’s exciting new projects ‘Healthy@Home’ and ‘Women’s Health Awareness’ services that are now available to the community. Healthy@Home is a free telehealth support service aimed at supporting people to stay well at home.
This service is available to anyone over the age of 18 years who have a medical condition or situation that makes them vulnerable and at risk of hospitalisation and frequent urgent care presentation. Nicole shared her passion around Women’s Health and is excited to be a part of the Health Service team that will provide cervical screening for the community. 2023 will see a further expansion of services in Women’s Health.
The meeting also recognised and thanked several staff who achieved long service awards for their outstanding dedication and loyalty to the Health Service. Board of Directors, Board Chair, David Lenehan said “We are looking forward to 2023 as being a year of growth as we ensure our Health Service is strong and relevant so we can continue to meet the needs of the community.”
