'Positive' Trust AGM attracts record attendance


The Trust AGM attracted a record attendance of 120 as members of the public and stakeholders were updated on the Trust’s performance over the past year.

The AGM, which will be the last in its current format, heard from MSE CEO Claire Panniker on the group’s objectives and the benefits of next year’s merger, and managing director Jane Farrell discussed our CQC status and latest quality initiatives.

There was also a review from chief financial officer James O’Sullivan, and two well-received presentations from associate director of nursing Jo Myers on the burns and plastics listening event, and Dr Isabel Costello on the excellent work of our frailty unit.

Prior to the event there were refreshments and a number of stands in the MAU where the public could find out more from our falls, audiology, diabetes, sustainability, burns, and charity teams.

Trust secretary James Day said: “It was a really good-natured, positive meeting. Over 100 people is the most we’ve ever had to an AGM, and we had good questions from the floor on transport, nurse training and the use of the St Peter’s site.

“I’d like to say an enormous thanks to everyone concerned with the presentations, the stands in the MAU and the set-up who made it such a huge success.”
