Ambulance Service Opens its Doors to Members of the Public
23 September 2011
Members of the public are being offered the chance for a behind-the-scenes look at their local ambulance service at an open morning being held by Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
The event, which will provide the opportunity for people to meet with a range of staff, including members of the Trust Board and frontline clinicians, and look around the Trust’s new state-of-the-art fleet, will be held at 9am on Tuesday 27 September 2011 at the Ramada York Hotel in York.
The Trust’s fifth Annual General Meeting will follow at 10am to highlight the ambulance service’s achievements during 2010-11 and plans for the year ahead, together with the formal presentation of the annual report and accounts for this period.
David Whiting (pictured right), Chief Executive of Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said: “We’d like to extend a warm welcome to anybody who wants to come along, find out more about what we do and share their ideas and ask us questions.
“The involvement of patients, families, relatives and other members of the public in what we do has never been more important to us, especially as we start our journey towards becoming a foundation trust.”
Anyone who would like to contribute to the Trust’s consultation on becoming a Foundation Trust will also get the chance to do so at the event.
The AGM will be followed by a Public Trust Board meeting at 11am. Copies of the agenda will be available at the meeting or upon request from Trust Headquarters, tel: 0845 124 1241.
