Martin Green, Chief Executive of Hull City of Culture 2017, is to be the guest speaker at Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s Annual Members’ Meeting.

His address will be one of the highlights of a free public event scheduled to be held on Wednesday 13 September in The Kingston Suite at the KCOM Stadium in Hull. 

Chief Executive Michele Moran said:

We are delighted Martin has agreed to speak to our members on the subject of Hull City of Culture 2017 and health. His talk and question and answer session will be among the highlights of an event that will give people an opportunity to meet our staff, hear about our clinical and financial performance in the past 12 months, and learn about the exciting opportunities and challenges that lie ahead

The event will begin at 12.30pm with a market stall event showcasing the services the Trust provides in Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire and Whitby, including mental health, learning disability, community, and healthy lifestyle and addictions services.

Members of the Trust’s recruitment team will advertise vacancies and its charity, HealthStars, will provide information about its own fund-raising projects and provide an opportunity to sign up to its lottery.

Chief Executive Michele Moran will open the formal part of the meeting at 2.30pm before introducing Mr Green, who will deliver a 15-minute speech before answering questions.

Following a short video, Chair Sharon Mays and governors will speak, Ms Moran will deliver her review of the year and then Director of Finance Peter Beckwith will present the accounts.

Mrs Mays will take questions and introduce another brief video before guests are given a further opportunity to look at the market stalls.

Ms Moran said:

We’re looking forward to welcoming our members and the public from Hull, the East Riding and Whitby to what should be a fantastic event. We have lots to show and tell them and we hope they enjoy it

Light refreshments will be available.
