Trust's annual meeting will reflect on recovery after Covid

Our annual members' meeting will this year reflect on restoration and recovery after Covid.

The meeting offers a chance for the public to hear and ask questions about the Trust's work, and will take place at 5.30pm on Tuesday, 21 September 2021. It will be held online for the second year in a row.

The event will hear from interim chief executive Craig Black about life at the Trust over the past year, and its plans for the future.

There will also be a panel discussion – ‘After the storm: restoration and recovery following Covid-19’ – hosted by Sky News reporter Emma Birchley, which will offer insights into how the Trust is recovering, restoring and adapting its services to support patients through the most challenging time in the history of the NHS.

The Trust runs West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds; Newmarket Community Hospital; outpatient services at Botesdale, Haverhill, Mildenhall, Newmarket, Stowmarket, Sudbury, and Thetford; and community health services across west Suffolk.

Trust chair Sheila Childerhouse said: “This is an opportunity to hear about our recent achievements, highlights and challenges, and to ask questions about the care and services our community receives. I do hope that you can join us."

The event is open to all, and can be viewed via the Trust’s website at – the link will become active shortly before the event starts. A recording will be made available after the event for those unable to attend live.

Members of the public can email to submit questions in advance.
