NNUH AGM focus: You decide
This year the focus for the AGM at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) will be chosen by the public.
Patients, families, carers and staff can take part in a public vote to select the presentation they would most like to see at the online event on Wednesday 7 October.
Topics are: the Benefits of Research, Life at NNUH in the Critical Care Complex and Maternity care innovations.
Sam Higginson, Chief Executive, said: “Our staff are amazing, they have achieved a huge amount in the last year, which has been one of our most challenging due to Covid. The Trust is on an improvement journey and it’s the staff who have made the difference, bringing in innovations and raising standards.
“We continuously listen to our patients, families, carers and staff to learn from their experience and feedback, and I am looking forward to finding out which presentation they choose for our event.”
David White, Chairman, said: “We’ve come a long way in a year and I would like to thank all the staff for your hard work and thank our community for all your support. Please vote for which presentation you would like to see the most – they are all fascinating subjects, and join us at our AGM event online on 7 October.”
The public can vote on the following subjects here – the vote runs until 21 September.
Benefits of Research – this presentation would focus on recent innovations and the many benefits for patients of being involved in research. Patients know that if the team looking after you is research-active, that it is more likely to be at the cutting edge of healthcare and medicine, and patients are extremely altruistic in their motivation also, in knowing that by taking part in research, they are helping others for the future.
Critical Care – Viewers will be able to hear about the work of the Critical Care team including their work during the pandemic when they treated an unprecedented number of patients with acute respiratory problems.
Maternity – the team has brought in a number of innovations to improve patient experience and quality of services. They will explain the exciting changes, new ways of working and achievements made this year.
This year’s AGM will be an online event. The online event starts at 4pm and will cover the achievements this year and the Trust’s vision for the future plus the Charity Awards to the community and the launch of the Patient Engagement and Experience Strategy. There will also be a presentation on improvements in Palliative Care.
