Members' Say 2015

The Trust held its tenth Annual Members’ Meeting on Saturday 26 September 2015 in the RILD building on the RD&E Wonford site. This year’s theme focused on the future of healthcare and how the NHS needs to adapt to meet the challenges it currently faces. The Executive team, including Chairman James Brent, Chief Executive Angela Pedder and Head of Governors Richard May, fed back an update on the Trust’s progress throughout the year.

Members also got an insight into work at the RD&E with ‘Medicine for Members’ talks on ideas for new models of care and the future of personalised medicine.
