Improving health and lives together – Annual Members’ Meeting 2024 and celebration event

Our Annual Members' Meeting and celebration event 2024

Every year, we hold an Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) and celebration event, 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.

In 2024, the event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 30 July 2024, from 10:30am to 3pm at The Bridge Conference Centre (Cypress Room), Rider Street, Leeds, LS9 7BQ. You can find out more about the venue and how to get there on their website.

Our Annual Members’ Meeting will be held in the morning from 10:30am, and will be chaired by Merran McRae, Chair of the Trust. This will include presentations from Sara Munro, our Chief Executive; Dawn Hanwell, our Chief Financial Officer; and Les France, our Lead Governor about our work and performance over the 2023/24 financial year. This will include:

  • 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.
  • A question-and-answer session with the panel facilitated by the Chair of the Trust

A complimentary finger buffet lunch will be provided following the AMM.

From 1pm we’ll be hosting our annual celebration event which this year is titled “Improving Health and Lives Together. Here we’ll be showcasing some fantastic examples of how we’ve improved the lives of the communities we serve by working in partnership with our staff, service users and carers, and our health and care partners.

There are a limited number of spaces available so if you’d like to join us, please reserve your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. You can reserve your space by contacting our events team at andrewsimscentre.lypft@nhs.net / 0113 85 55638

Annual Members Meeting 2023

In 2023, our Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) looked a little different as we held a special event to mark 75 years of the NHS with Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The first part of the day was our formal AMM, which was chaired by Merran McRae, Trust Chair. The meeting consisted 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 was also an opportunity to ask board members questions.

We then served a delicious afternoon tea for all attendees to enjoy, and after this, held a special event to celebrate the NHS’ 75th birthday.

At the event, we showcased 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 wasn’t just about us at LYPFT, as we recognised that the strength of our partnerships with local groups and organisations is also what makes us great.

There were interactive sessions and artistic performances too.

Our NHS75 @ LYPFT event took 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.
