The Trust held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday 27 September at Oxstalls Campus, University of Gloucestershire. We were pleased to welcome over 100 members of the public, stakeholders, partner organisations and colleagues to the event, with over 60 people attending the formal AGM.

The exhibition focused on the range of community-based services we provide, including our Integrated Community Teams (ICTs), Chat Health (our new text messaging service for 11-19 year olds), and our partnership with Macmillan to deliver the Next Steps Cancer Rehabilitation service.

Attendees also had the opportunity to view a model ward which will be used for student training, as part of the University of Gloucestershire’s brand new innovative nursing degrees, launching this autumn. As a key partner for the new degree programme, we are looking forward to working alongside nursing undergraduates to help them develop the skills and adaptability to deliver high quality patient care.

The formal AGM session included a summary of our key achievements over the last 12 months via a short video featuring Katie Norton, Chief Executive and colleagues from across the Trust. We also heard presentations from a number of service areas including a collaborative approach to improving the Children’s End of Life Care Pathway, and how our Allied Health Professionals will be delivering against the four impacts of the AHP National Strategy.
