Thank you to everyone who joined us for C&I's Annual Members' Meeting for 2021, when our new Chief Executive Jinjer Kandola MBE set out her ambitions for the Trust.
Jinjer, who is the Joint CEO across C&I and neighbouring mental health trust, BEH, also paid tribute to the work of our former CEO, Angela McNab and said she would be building on that to further improve services and the working environment. Her aims imclude embedding the Clinical Strategy, developing our estate, our digital transformation work and making our Trust culture the very best it can be.
Jinjer's appointment follows that of a Joint Chair in Common, Jackie Smith, who hosted the annual meeting. Presentations were delivered by Deputy Chief Executive, Darren Summers, Chief Nurse, Michelle Johnson, Finance Director David Wragg, and our Lead Governor, Eric Crossfield. They thanked staff for their commitment and dedication, and reflected on our services and achievements during an unprecedented year for the NHS.
The event was online again this year. The last Annual Members' Meeting was held virtually for the first time because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you told us that you enjoyed the flexibility that an online meeting offered so, with infection rates still high this year, we again hosted the meeting on Microsoft Teams.
