Ambulance Service Opens its Doors to Members of the Public

23 September 2015

Members of the public are being given the chance to take a closer look at their local ambulance service at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) next week.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday 29 September 2015 at Doncaster Racecourse. A public presentation on NHS 111 by Keeley Townend, Associate Director of NHS 111 and Urgent Care will take place from 10.45am to 11.15am and will be followed by the AGM, from 11.30am to 1pm. The bi-monthly Trust Board Meeting Held in Public will begin after lunch at 1.30pm and is expected to run until 4.15pm.

The event will provide an opportunity for people to meet with a range of staff including members of the Trust Board and frontline clinicians and learn about the latest developments at the Service and its performance over the past year. The AGM will highlight the Trust’s achievements during 2014-15, will detail its plans for the future and will formally present the annual report and accounts for this period.

Rod Barnes, Chief Executive of Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said: “2014-15 has not been without its challenges, but there have been many positive developments at YAS. We hope to showcase these and our future plans with members of the public.

“Responding effectively to patient needs is at the heart of everything we do and we’re looking forward to sharing the steps we’ve taken and the initiatives we have in place to ensure we continue to provide a safe, reliable and high quality service for people across Yorkshire and the Humber.”
