Members invited to Derby Hospitals annual meeting

13 August 2012

Local members of Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have been invited to the Annual Members’ Meeting on Thursday 6 September, designed to inform them about the Trust’s progress over the last year and its plans for the future.

The evening is open to Foundation Trust members only and will showcase the continuing development of Derby Hospitals. The meeting will include presentations from members of the Board of Directors focusing on performance, finances, quality of care, challenges and opportunities. There is also an opportunity for questions to be directed at a panel of senior staff, including the chief executive Sue James.

The meeting starts at 6pm with hot drinks available from 5pm, when members will be able to view a selection of information stalls, interactive stands and posters on display in the reception area. The meeting will be held in the Darwin Suite of Derby Assembly Rooms.

The evening also includes the annual Celebrating Success Awards. The awards celebrate the innovative and hugely beneficial projects that have been designed by staff and implemented throughout the hospitals. The successful projects have enhanced the patient experience through new approaches to care.

Entries are shortlisted by a group of judges, after which staff then vote for their winners. The winners will be presented with a trophy and certificate, and acknowledged for their inspirational achievements.

Justine Fitzjohn, assistant trust secretary, said: “The evening is a fantastic way to find out what has been happening in the Trust over the past year and how we have been involved in the local community. The evening has been well attended in previous years and we hope Trust members take the opportunity to join us as we recognise our achievements of the past year and look ahead to future challenges.”
