Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Wednesday 6 September, inviting the community to join the conversation and ask questions to those responsible for running our hospitals.
The event offered members of the public, including staff and patients of the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust the opportunity to hear from our departing Trust chair Ellen Schroder who presented a look back at 2022/23 in numbers, system working, our exciting new vascular hub and the impactful work of our East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity.
The event also looked ahead to what’s next for the Trust, which runs Hertford County Hospital, Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Mount Vernon Cancer Centre in Northwood and the New QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City.
Director of finance Martin Armstrong delivered a detailed review of the Trusts financial performance, whilst chief executive Adam Sewell-Jones delivered our plans for the future, including the exciting Virginia Mason Institute improvement project and our commitment to staff and patients.

The agenda also focused on our commitment to continued improvement, learning from mistakes and working with patients to improve our services.
This year, we spoke to parent and advocate Sarah Leigh about her experiences as a parent of an autistic patient at the Trust. The experiences of Sarah and her son at the Trust created impactful change, through their invaluable contribution to creating an innovative Healthcare Passport for children and young people with learning disabilities and/or complex needs
