Annual Members' Meeting 2020

Wednesday 9 September | 3:30pm till 5pm Join virtually via Microsoft Teams

Everyone is welcome to join our Annual Members’ Meeting

In line with current national social distancing guidelines, this year we are holding our Annual Members’ Meeting virtually via a free to use platform called Microsoft Teams.

What to expect during the meeting:

At the meeting the Trust’s annual report and accounts 2019-20 will be presented by our Chief Executive Siobhan Melia and Chief Financial Officer Mike Jennings.

Our Chief Nurse, Donna Lamb, who joined the Trust on 1 June, will talk about how the Trust has been maintaining quality of care through the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be followed by the Lead Governor’s report from David McGill.

There will then be a questions and answers session.

Before we close, there will be a presentation about the Trust’s charity from our Non-Executive Director, Janice Needham, and Community Fundraising Manager, Rosie Hemming. They will share information about the purpose of the charity, examples of donations made during the pandemic and how people can get involved and fundraise.

You can view the agenda here.
