Welsh Ambulance service to hold virtual AGM at beginning of October

THE Welsh Ambulance Service will host a virtual Annual General Meeting next month, and the public and stakeholders are invited to attend.

Hear more about the Trust’s achievements in 2019/20, plus how it has dealt with the Covid-19 pandemic and what this means for its future plans.

The once-yearly meeting will be hosted on Zoom and streamed live on Facebook on Thursday 01 October from 9.30 am.

Chair Martin Woodford said: “While 2020 has certainly posed plenty of challenges for us, one of the unexpected benefits of the current situation has been our rapid adoption of digital and video technology to engage with stakeholders.

“We’ve already blazed the trail with our digital Board meetings, which regularly attract more than 100 participants.

“We are now extending this approach to our AGM, which we hope will make it easier for people to join us to find out more about our experiences in 2019/20 and our plans for 2020 and beyond.”

Chief Executive Jason Killens added: “You’ll be able to hear more about what happened in 2019/20, including our pandemic response, and what this means for us in 2020, including how are plans and services have been affected, the new things we’re doing to contribute to the pandemic response and how we’re ensuring our services remain safe and effective for our people and our patients.

“While the Covid-19 pandemic has been challenging for all of us, we hope the AGM will be a positive opportunity to reflect on the last year and to share our plans for the future.

“We hope you will be able to join us.”

The AGM is on Thursday 01 October, from 9.30am-11.30am.
