People from across East Anglia are being invited to Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust’s (NSFT) annual general meeting which has been arranged to tie in with a key mental health awareness day. The AGM will be held on Thursday, 8 October, two days before World Mental Health Day, which aims to raise awareness of the things which can be done to help people with mental health problems to live with dignity. During the meeting, which takes place at The Great Hospital in Bishopgate, Norwich, the Trust's annual report and accounts will be presented before Leigh Howlett, Director of Strategy and Resources, introduces the Trust’s ‘Putting People First’ strategy. The Trust's new service user and carer engagement strategy will then be launched by NSFT Chair Gary Page, with support from some of the people who have been cared for by the Trust, before Norfolk’s nursing academy holds its first graduation. The academy launched last November and provides newly-qualified staff with additional training and support as they make the transition from university to the workplace. Two of the nurses who have benefitted will be on hand at the meeting to tell their stories and answer any questions. The AGM runs from 2.30pm to 5.45pm and is open to Trust members, staff, and the public. There is no need to book.
