Local Hospital Trust to host first virtual Annual Members’ Meeting

Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals is hosting its first ever virtual Annual Members’ Meeting on 24 September.

This is an opportunity to hear about the work and achievements of the organisation in 2019/20. The video-format meeting, will take place on Thursday 24 September and will be available for all members to view online from 6pm onwards.

Suzy Brain England, Chair of the Board at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH), said: “Since we became a Foundation Trust, we have held a meeting every year for our members to attend and receive an update on the previous 12 months. This year, due to the restrictions on large meetings and social distancing measures in place, our Annual Members’ Meeting will take place virtually for the first time ever.

“Even though we will miss seeing you all there in person, we are excited that you can now attend the meeting from the comfort of your own home using video technology and we hope that this will make the event more convenient for you.

“Whilst the latter months of the year required the Trust to fundamentally change the way we provide care due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we must not forget that the past year has been full of promise and improvement for the Trust and this is an opportunity for our Board of Directors, Council of Governors and members to come together to reflect on this performance.”

The meeting will be conducted online but it will follow a similar agenda to previous years. There is an option to submit questions beforehand and members wishing to do so should go to dbth.nhs.uk and search ‘Annual Members Meeting’ to complete an online submission form.
