Attending a live event or question & answer session at CHFT

Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) have now started to deliver some live events for patients online. 

The live events are available to patients in different ways depending on the service.

Live events are set up so that you can attend as part of a larger audience, such as a question and answer session with one of our staff members or a presentation.  You will be able to watch and listen to the event, but you won’t be on the screen.  No-one will be able to see you. 

A live event might include presenters who will be talking, sharing videos or a presentations.  There may also be the chance for you to ask questions which you type in on your screen.  

  • Select Q&A. on the right side of the screen. Note: The Q&A panel only appears if the organizer has set it up.
  • Type your question in the compose box, and then select Send. If you want to ask your question anonymously, select Ask anonymously.

Live events are a great way for our organisation to present information to a large audience without having to arrange an event at the hospital or other location.

There are different ways that you might access a live event.

By invitation

If you need to be invited to a live event a secure link will be sent to you in an email from CHFT (once you have consented).  You will be able to tap/click on the link at the time of the event to watch online and ask questions.

Access from our website or closed Facebook groups

The event might not need an invitation and you might see it advertised by one of our services.  If it doesn’t need an invitation you will be able to tap/click the link from a secure location like a closed Facebook group or a page on the CHFT website at the time of the event to join.
