A North Lincolnshire health organisation will hold its first ever virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) next month – and is encouraging members of the public to join online.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, NHS North Lincolnshire CCG will not hold the meeting in a public venue this year. Instead, the event, set to take place on 24 September, will be live streamed through the organisation’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. The meeting will take place between 2pm and 4pm.
Dr Faisel Baig, Chair of NHS North Lincolnshire CCG, said: “We are delighted to be able to invite colleagues, stakeholders and members of the public to join our virtual AGM this year.
“With many public events being cancelled due to the pandemic, holding the meeting virtually is our best option to ensure the safety of attendees and staff.”
Emma Latimer, Accountable Officer, said: “Our AGM is an opportunity to reflect on the past twelve months and to highlight areas of service improvement for the people of North Lincolnshire”.
Alex Seale, Chief Operating Officer, said: “This year’s AGM will still follow a similar agenda to previous years. We will take a look back on highlights and achievements from 2019/20, discuss our response to Covid-19, and explore the future and the challenges it may bring. We will also discuss our financial performance from the previous year, with a focus on how and where our budget was spent.
“We will finish with a question and answers session, but due to the event being virtual, we are asking for all questions to be submitted prior to the event by emailing NLCCG.firstname.lastname@example.org.”
NHS North Lincolnshire CCG’s AGM is set to be streamed via its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NorthLincsCCG/live) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/channel/UCvRmJl_yHL6gNDAjT_IlfDg) on Thursday, 24 September. For those who do not have the internet, there will be the option to dial in and listen to the event. To receive the telephone details, please contact NLCCG.email@example.com.
