Annual Members' Meeting
Our Annual Members’ Meeting will take place on Tuesday 26 September from 12.30pm at the Sheffield United Football Club Executive Suites on John Street, Sheffield, S2 4SU. It’s a great chance for you and all our members, service users, carers and the public to not only see what developments and new initiatives are taking place in the Trust by visiting the exhibition hall, but also a chance to chat with staff about and to hear about the Trust’s performance in 2016/17. It’s also an opportunity to speak with your Governors and see how they have represented you over the year, and to put any questions you might have about the Trust’s performance and future plans to members of the Board.

Annual Members’ Meeting 2016
The Annual Members’ Meeting took place on Wednesday 28 September at the Sheffield United Football Club Conference facility on John Street. As in previous years, it was a well-attended and bustling event.
It began with the Market Place which provided an excellent opportunity to find out about new initiatives and developments taking place throughout the Trust including an opportunity to give feedback on the Trust’s strategy for the years to come. In addition, the Care Quality Commission was there to ask people their views of the Trust ahead of inspecting the Trust and its services in November.
A new addition to proceedings this year was the Sheffield Music Project. The group comprises mainly service users with some staff and they serenaded the event with songs from the Beatles to Van Morrison.

After the report was presented the Chair opened up the room for questions. Sandra Palmer asked a question about service user involvement in the reconfiguration of community services, John Buston asked a question about the staff sickness and Pat Molloy asked a question about the Trust’s view of the greatest challenges facing the NHS.
