Around 100 people attended the Trust’s Annual Members Meeting which took place on 3 September at the Spitfire Cricket Ground in Canterbury. Attendees were able to speak to staff representing a range of services including diabetes, therapies, oncology and dementia. There were presentations about avoiding falls and the Trust’s exciting ‘I can’ project to encourage patients to stay active and avoid muscle loss, based on an idea from physiotherapist, Alex Armstrong who introduced a card above each patient’s bed stating what they ‘can’ do.
The Chair and Chief Executive of the Trust described the performance for 2018/19 and plans for the future. Lead Governor, Sarah Andrews spoke about the work done by the Council of Governors. Questions at the end of the meeting covered topics such as dementia, sharing of medical records and staffing.
