local NHS Trust is inviting members of the public to hear about how it has
performed over the last year at its Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) 2018.
Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s AMM takes place from 1.30pm on 18 July at
Rotherham Hospital and is open to anyone who has an interest in local health
services. It will detail some of the Trust’s significant achievements and
developments as well as the challenges it has faced over the last 12 months.
the meeting, the Trust’s Chairman, Martin Havenhand and Board of Directors will
present the Trust’s Annual Report and Accounts for 2017/18 alongside its
2018/19 operational plan, future plans and priorities. The Board will also
share key highlights from 2017/18 including the successes of the Trust’s award
winning employees and services, the opening of the state-of-the-art Urgent and
Emergency Care Centre and their progress in new and integrated ways of working.
Havenhand said: “Like many Trusts across the country it has been a challenging
year both operationally and financially. However, as a result of the
collaborative work we continue to undertake with our partners across Rotherham
and the wider region, we have been able to make some really positive changes
for the population we serve.
October last year, we were privileged to welcome HRH The Duke of Kent who
officially opened our new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre which was developed
in partnership with NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group. During the last
year, we have also evaluated our locality pilot where we have been working in a
more integrated way to improve efficiency and effectiveness, and we’ll be
looking at how we can further implement this across Rotherham.
Annual Members’ Meeting provides the ideal opportunity to hear first-hand about
our achievements, overall performance and the challenges we continue to face.
We are committed to delivering our vision to be an outstanding Trust, providing
excellent healthcare at home, in our community and in hospital, and I encourage
those who are interested to come along on the 18 July to find out more.”

will showcase the work they do and share information about the services they
provide for patients.
