Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust AGM

Members of the public are invited to join the board of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust at its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 23 September 2015.

The hospitals trust is taking a different approach to this year’s meeting, with a panel discussion and presentation from an expert stroke consultant to give the event a boost and get the audience involved.

The panel will consist of health and social care professionals, and the discussion will be around improving urgent and emergency care. Questions from the AGM audience will be welcomed.

The presentation will be from stroke consultant Dr Phil Sanmuganathan, talking about the impact that centralisation of stroke services has had on patients and staff.

The trust will also use the event to launch its annual review of the year brochure – looking back at staff achievements and patient experience over the last financial year.

In 2014/15 the Trust has cared for 133,842 inpatients, 149,058 A&E attendees and seen 520,868 patients at outpatient appointments. Maternity teams have seen a busy year with 5,741 babies born at the Alexandra and Worcestershire Royal Hospitals.

The AGM will be held on Wednesday 23 September, 5pm for a 5.30pm start. This year’s meeting is at the Charles Hastings Education Centre on the Worcestershire Royal Hospital site. All members of the public are invited to attend.

“AGM guests will also get the opportunity to hear about stroke services direct from one of our expert consultants.

“We’ve achieved a lot in the last year, which we will reflect on, and this year’s AGM gives you the opportunity to get more involved in the conversation about our hospitals, patients and staff.”
