Welsh Ambulance Service to host Annual General Meeting

THE Welsh Ambulance Service will reflect on how it dealt with the Covid-19 pandemic at its Annual General Meeting this month.


Hear more about the Trust’s coronavirus effort and how it has shaped its future plans, as well as its other achievements in 2020/21.


Participants can also pose a question to Board members which will be answered as part of a live Q&A session.


The once-yearly meeting will be hosted on Zoom and streamed live on Facebook on Thursday 29 July from 9.30am, and members of the public are warmly invited to attend.

Chair Martin Woodford said: “2020/21 has been a year like no other – a year of pandemic, of supreme challenges and of great human resilience and commitment.


“We shouldn’t lose sight of the positives we have experienced – outstanding commitment from our staff and volunteers, a groundswell of support from the public, leaps forward in the use of digital technology and better partnerships forged with stakeholders, both old and new.

“These experiences have left a legacy of optimism and renewed ambition, together with significant opportunities to build on these foundations as we look to the future.

“We hope that at this year’s AGM, you will find a real sense of how this year has felt for us as an organisation, for our people and for the people we serve.


“It’s also an opportunity to share our plans for the future, including how we’re ensuring our services remain safe and effective for our people and our patients.

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