Annual public and members meeting 2023
This year's Annual Public and Members Meeting (APMM) 2023 celebrated a ‘year of compassion in partnership’ with updates on the Trust’s recent achievements, as well as showcasing plans and priorities for the year ahead.
Trust Chair Crishni Waring opened the virtual event saying “there is much to be proud of” in terms of NHFT successes and innovations over the past 12 months.
Participants had the option to submit comments and questions, via Slido, which were answered during the event.
It also included an update from Christine Edwards on the launch of the Crisis Response Unit which has a team made up of 18 multi-skilled individuals including nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, carers, peer support workers and others who attend and support people experiencing a mental health crisis.
There was also a session called ‘We are all in the same storm’ about special care dentistry from Gill Howie who shared how the team, in partnership with others, help provide quality dental services to people with learning or physical disabilities, and some of the challenges and complexities around this.
