Highest ever attendance at Annual General Meeting

19 Sep 2012 16:27:25

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) welcomed its highest ever attendance at its recent Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The AGM was open to patients, staff, Governors and the general public and there was standing room only as the Trust’s Chairman, Chief Executive and Board members delivered presentations to the audience on the Trust’s Annual Report and Accounts 2011/2012.

Brian James, TRFT’s Chief Executive, presented a look back at the challenges and successes of the past year and an overview of the Trust’s strategy for the next three years. Mr James, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended our AGM this year which proved to be the most successful in terms of numbers attending. This demonstrates the support for the Trust from people of Rotherham during a period of severe austerity faced by the NHS which is a consequence of the global financial crisis. The AGM provided a platform for the Trust to engage with the general public in understanding the difficulties ahead, but it also provided an opportunity to share our ideas about how services can be sustained and indeed enhanced and improved in these challenging economic times.”

Peter Lee, TRFT’s Chairman said: “Our Chief Executive reflected upon the year passed and delivered what I, and others, described as an inspirational address. This covered the future shape of services to our community and the part the Trust will play in shaping those local services by working with other providers and commissioners in the town to make sure that services, which are affordable within the new economic environment, are also of the highest quality which can be provided.”
