RD&E Annual Members’ Meeting 2020 & Virtual Members’ Engagement Event: On route to Reset & Recovery
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) and Member Engagement event on Wednesday 30 September 2020. The event will provide an opportunity for Trust members to hear more about the Trust’s performance over the previous financial year, to learn more about aspects of our work and to contribute your views.
Our event will include talks by some of our clinicians themed around learning from our COVID-19 experiences, how we are delivering our services in light of the pandemic and also how our new electronic patient record system (MY CARE) will change the way that people access care in our hospitals and community settings. There will be two focus groups (only available to pre-book before the event!) see below. These events will be followed by the formal Annual Members Meeting.
Due to the COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, this year the event will be hosted entirely online. Easy to follow joining instructions will be shared once you have signed up. You do not require any special software but to take part you will require a computer or tablet connected to the internet.
