AGM "a success"

A successful Annual General Meeting (AGM) was the verdict of an appreciative audience as the Trust-wide event drew to a close on Thursday 23rd September.

Hosted by AWP Chair Felicity Longshaw at Jenner House, and broadcast live to eight other venues, colleagues and friends were welcomed to the event by Felicity, who then went on to detail some of the highlights of the previous year.

Next, Director of Finance and Commerce & Deputy Chief Executive Paul Miller provided an insight into the Trust's financial position and explained some of the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.

Chief Executive Laura McMurtrie closed the first half of the event with a presentation that focused on the themes of quality, innovation, productivity and prevention. She also urged that we "compare ourselves with the best, not the mediocre."

Following a short question and answer session, Dr Liz Howells OBE spoke of the innovative work taking place within the Primary Care Psychology Service.

The penultimate speaker was AWP's Involvement Team manager, Lu Duhig. Lu explained the concept and implementation of the 'Triangle of Care', a project which she has written extensively on.

Last, but by no means least, was guest speaker Laurie Bryant. Laurie, a national Service User Advisor, spoke passionately about his personal journey of recovery and hope, a message he was keen to pass on to an appreciative audience.
