Annual Members’ Meeting

An annual event to share and celebrate the work of our Trust.

Every year, we hold an Annual Members’ Meeting where we bring together the Trust’s members, our staff, our governors and members of the Board of Directors. It is a fantastic day where members have the opportunity to find out about some of the great work we have been doing over the last 12 months.

There is often a “marketplace” to showcase this work, and the meeting usually includes a “Big Conversation” – a table discussion where guests have their say on an important topic.

In 2023, this meeting will look a little different as we hold a special event to mark 75 years of the NHS with Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The first part of the day will still be our formal Annual General Meeting, which will be chaired by Merran McRae, who became our new Trust Chair with effect from 1 January 2023.

The AGM consists of presentations showcasing:

  • What the Council of Governors has been doing over the last year on behalf of the members that they represent.
  • Our annual accounts for the past year and reports on how we have used our money to provide and develop our services.
  • What the Trust has done over the last year and what we want to achieve in the coming year.

There will also be an opportunity to ask board members questions. If you’d like to submit a question in advance, please email us at

We’ll then be serving a delicious afternoon tea for all attendees to enjoy, and after this, will be holding a special event to celebrate the NHS’ 75th birthday.

At the event, we’ll be showcasing stories from our staff, volunteers, service users and carers, and those with lived experience about how the NHS has helped them, or how the service has evolved and improved over the years to meet their needs. And it’s not just about us at LYPFT, as we recognise that the strength of our partnerships with local groups and organisations is also what makes us great.

There will be interactive sessions and hopefully artistic performances too.

Our NHS75 @ LYPFT event will take place from 10am until 3:30pm on Tuesday 25 July 2023 in the Palm Court Room at The Queens Hotel, near the train station in Leeds city centre.

*This event is now fully booked, please email to be added to the waiting list*
