The future for stroke care and how an Electronic Patient Record will transform hospital services are the two key presentations at this year’s AGM for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH).

The AGM event is open to the public and takes place on Wednesday 4 October, from 2pm to 6pm, in the Benjamin Gooch Lecture Theatre at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

NNUH Chair Tom Spink says: “Our hospitals serve the local community and this is an important opportunity for us to showcase our services and describe the work we are doing to improve care for patients.

”Everyone is welcome to join us and hear more about how we are using technology to transform healthcare in Norfolk and Waveney.”

From 2pm, visitors can tour the marketplace of stands, finding out more about hospital services and meeting staff.

From 4pm to 6pm, there will be presentations in the lecture theatre with a review of the year and the annual awards for the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity.

The keynote speakers include Dr Catherine Head, Consultant Cardiologist and Dr Joyce Balami, Consultant Stroke Physician who will describe plans to introduce a mechanical thrombectomy service which involves the catheter removal of a blood clot in the brain following a stroke.

Mr Ed Prosser-Snelling, Chief Digital Information Officer and Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, will outline how services will look in the future when we have an Electronic Patient Record and describe the benefits for patients and staff.

The event concludes with a question and answer session with a panel of the NNUH executive team.

Patients, staff and visitors are welcome to attend and there is no need to book a place. For more information, contact
