Press release – July 9 2021
Wye Valley NHS Trust is disappointed to announce that it has had to postpone its Annual General Meeting which was due to take place on Thursday, July 15.
The meeting has been postponed as a result of changes to National Audit Office requirements under the Local Audit and Accountability Act, which would mean the annual report and accounts would not be officially approved in time.
The Trust is not unique - a number of NHS Trusts are having to delay their Annual General Meetings as a result of the changes.
The AGM was due to take place virtually and was billed a celebration of the Trust’s achievements and the staff’s hard work during the last financial year against a backdrop of the pandemic.
The Trust is already making plans to reschedule the AGM – which is likely to be during September.
Once this has been agreed, the Trust will communicate this widely.
