Entrance to the day surgery unit at Castle Hill Hospital

The opening of the new £10m Day Surgery Unit and efforts to reduce carbon emissions are among the topics for discussion when Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust holds its Annual General Meeting next week.

Chief Executive, Chris Long, who’s been at the helm of the hospitals trust since 2014, will lead his final AGM at 10am on Monday 10th July, along with Chairman Sean Lyons.

The meeting will be held virtually via MS Teams and patients, staff and members of the public are all welcome to attend.

As well as Chris’s final review of the year where he will recap on some of the challenges and achievements experienced by the Trust in 2022/23, guests will also hear from Lee Bond, Chief Financial Officer, who will discuss financial activity over the past 12 months and offer a look ahead to what the coming year may bring.

Duncan Taylor, Director of Major Developments for the Trust, will look back on hospital developments over the years, then provide an overview of some of the Trust’s ongoing and recently completed capital schemes, including the new Main Entrance at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill’s new £10m Day Surgery Unit.

These two developments alone have enabled the Trust to improve patient experience through the delivery of improved staff and patient facilities and the opportunity to reduce waiting times for thousands of people over the coming months.

Questions from the public are encouraged and will be answered at the end of the meeting.
