Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust AGM to be held on 20 October
17/10/2016

​Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday, 20 October.

Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting at IP-City Centre, 1 Bath Street, Ipswich IP2 8SD, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.

Trust chair, Gary Page, will open the AGM which will be made up of two parts separated by a break for refreshments.

The AGM will open with a presentation of its Annual Report and Accounts 2015-16 followed by a look at the innovative work of the Recovery College and the newly launched Wellbeing Suffolk service, before finishing with a graduation ceremony for the staff of the Trust’s Newly Qualified Academy.

NSFT Recovery College has been set-up to empower people with mental health problems to become experts in their own recovery, and provides a range of courses/workshops to service users, carers and members of staff to increase their understanding of mental health, support their access to opportunities and develop their skills.

Marcus Hayward, Head of Recovery, Participation and Partnership at NSFT, will provide an insight into the benefits of the Recovery College and the development of the Recovery Strategy.

The afternoon will continue with an update on the new Suffolk Wellbeing service which launched in September 2016. Nesta Reeve, Consultant Clinical Psychologist at NSFT, will talk about how the service has expanded and further improved, helping more people each year while supporting people of all ages.

And finally, the Trust will recognise their staff who have recently graduated from the Newly Qualified Academy.

The aim of the academy is to support newly qualified registered professionals in their first year of work so that they feel confident to develop their skills during their transitional year in the workplace.

Professor Jill Robinson from University Campus Suffolk, who is also a Trust’s non-executive director, will be presenting the certificates to those attending on the day.

“I look forward to seeing people at our  AGM”, said Gary Page. “The AGM is a great chance for members of the public to learn about the Trust and what we are doing to continue improving mental health care.

“This year has been particularly busy for us, and we have many things we would like to highlight to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.”
The AGM is open to the public, Trust members, and staff. There is no need to book, and refreshments will be served on arrival from 2pm.
