Press release from the Hywel Dda University Health Board: Join our Annual General Meeting
Anyone with an interest in local health care services is invited to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Hywel Dda University Health Board at 3.30pm on Thursday 26 July 2018.
This year, the AGM will review the achievements and challenges of the last year and set the direction for the year to come. The organisation’s Annual Report, including summary accounts and the Annual Quality Statement, will be at the AGM and explain clearly to staff, patients, and the general public what has been achieved in the year, what has been difficult, and how the health board intends improve services for local people.
Hywel Dda University Health Board Chair Bernardine Rees OBE said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to extend a warm welcome to staff, patients or members of our community who may want to attend our AGM. We look forward to this opportunity to share our reflections on the past year with our local population and to set our goals, aspirations and priorities for the year to come. I would urge those with an interest in local health care services to attend this meeting, or alternatively join our Siarad Iechyd/Talking Health membership scheme.
“Over the past year we have worked hard to address the challenges we continue to face, but we have also seen many achievements to be very proud of and I personally thank each and every one of our staff for their tireless efforts, day in and day out, for the benefit of our patients.
“This coming year is one where we will continue our focus, not just on improving our financial position and strengthening our workforce, but also on ‘Our Big NHS Change’ proposals which aim to significantly improve our health and care services, making them safe, sustainable, accessible and kind for the future. We look forward to achieving that aim together with our staff, partners and local communities and becoming a population health organisation, firmly focused on patient-centred care.”
The meeting will be held in Pembrokeshire College (Rooms L1.15/L1.17), Merlin’s Bridge, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA61 1SZ.
