Senior leaders at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation trust will be put on the spot by trust members, patients and the public at this year’s annual members’ meeting on 22 July.
Plans to build a new Chase Farm Hospital and the redevelopment of the Royal Free Hospital’s emergency department will be on agenda at the meeting, which brings together members, governors, directors, as well as the chairman of the Royal Free London. Non-members with an interest in the trust are also welcome to attend.
Taking place just over a year after the acquisition of Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust, the event will also feature a presentation and Q&A on the trust’s first 365 days as a new organisation.
It is also the members’ chance to make sure the board governors, who are elected to hold the trust to account, are truly representing their interests.
Richard Lindley, lead governor, said: “As governors we are volunteers. But our great strength is that most of us are elected by you, the members. We represent you and the annual members’ meeting is your chance to come and tell us what you really think about the Royal Free London.”
The event also sees the third edition of the annual governor’s annual report, which provides an update on the work your governors have been doing over the year.
You will also be able to pick up a copy of the 2014/15 trust annual report and accounts, which gives a comprehensive account of the trust’s performance, both in terms of finance and patient care.
The meeting will take place on 22 July 2015, 6-8pm, in the Sir William Wells Atrium at the Royal Free Hospital. Tea and coffee will be served on arrival. Wine and light snacks will be served at the end of the evening. To book your place email firstname.lastname@example.org.
