Members of the public are invited to Medway NHS Foundation Trust’s Annual Members’ Meeting on Thursday 15 September 2022.

It is a chance for people to find out what has happened at Medway Maritime Hospital over the past year and the Trust’s plans for the year ahead.

The audience will hear about the improvements that have been made, particularly to the Trust’s urgent care services which were recently rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission; as well as updates about a new improvement programme called Patient First, which launched earlier this year and is currently being rolled out.

Chief Executive Jayne Black said: “This is your chance to hear directly about what we are doing at your hospital and how we are performing. I’m delighted to say that this year’s Annual Members’ Meeting is being held in the hospital in person again for the first time since the pandemic. However we know that some people find it more convenient to join virtually, so this is an option too, for anyone who wants to hear the discussion but cannot be there in person. I look forward to welcoming you, however you choose to join us.”

Patient First will help the Trust focus on fewer priorities which make a big impact quickly, and also help achieve lasting change over time.

Jayne Black said: “In the coming year, we expect to see Patient First truly embedded and bringing clear and noticeable improvements to patient care and the way all our teams work - not only those on the frontline who deliver healthcare directly to patients, but also those in supporting and corporate teams whose work is so vital to the overall patient experience.”

The Annual Members’ Meeting takes place in the hospital restaurant, Below Deck Dining Room (Level One, Purple Zone), at 6pm on Thursday 15 September. You can book your place here. Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.

If you would like to attend and need additional support to do so, please email met-tr.members-medway@nhs.net to discuss how we could help you.

Anyone who lives in England or Wales can become a member of the Trust. It’s easy and free to sign up and you will receive regular updates on what’s happening, an invitation to the Annual Members’ Meeting and other opportunities to get involved, and you can vote in Governor elections when they take place. Click to find out more
