Members of the public can participate in the virtual Annual Public Meeting for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust by submitting questions for the Trust board members to discuss.
Earlier this year, the Trust, which runs Peterborough City, Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland Hospitals, took the decision to limit attendance at meetings and run virtual meetings in order to keep staff and patients safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Annual Public Meeting will meet using virtual meeting technology on Tuesday 6 October at 6pm to 6.45pm. Dr Kanchan Rege, Chief of Medicine, will be giving a short presentation entitled ‘Our Trust response to the Covid-19 pandemic – the story so far’ before a presentation of the Annual Report and Accounts for 2019-2020 and the Lead Governor’s response to them. In keeping with regular Annual Public Meetings, there will be a question and answer session at the end of the meeting, where members of the public can submit questions.
Rob Hughes, Chairman of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are still getting used to running our meetings virtually, but this is a great way to involve a wider group of people in the way our hospitals are run. We would welcome members of the public to submit any questions they have to the Board of Directors for consideration using the email: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
