QEH Annual Members’ Meeting to be held in September

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn’s Annual Members’ Meeting will be held on Wednesday 16 September 2020, 3pm – 5pm.

The Annual Members’ Meeting is an opportunity for the Trust’s members, patients, our local community, volunteers and Trust staff to hear from the Chairman of the Trust, the Chief Executive and Executive Team about the Trust’s progress during 2019/20 and ambitions for the year ahead. In addition, the meeting will also feature presentations from Trust experts on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our leading Research and Development team.

“The Executive Team and I look forward to welcoming our members, albeit virtually, to explore our progress over the last year, our ambitions for next year and to hear from some of our excellent staff on a number of areas where we have performed particularly well. We will also summarise the vital contributions of our Governors to the Trust’s improvements in 2019/20, and provide an update on the outcome of elections that have taken place in-year.”
