Healthcare provider addresses ageing population

On Monday 8 July, local healthcare provider South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust is holding their Annual Council of Governors’ & Members’ Meeting. A significant focus of the event will be the services that the Trust offers across Warwickshire to ‘help you to help yourself in older age.’

Event details:
14:00-17:00 on Monday 8 July 2019
Charlecote and Harewood Rooms, Crowne Plaza Hotel
Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6YR

It is predicted by the year 2035, 18,200 people living in Warwick will be aged 85 or older. During the meeting, attendees will learn about ‘The Oken Project’, one of a number of the Trust’s initiatives that addresses the challenges of an aging population. The project sees the Trust work in partnership with Warwick based GP practices and care homes to improve outcomes for patients by providing enhanced care in their place of residence.

Meeting attendees will also hear from a Trust Geriatric Clinician who will discuss measures in place to ensure patients are being cared for in the best environment. The innovative processes intend to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions.

The event will include staff award presentations, as well as a talk from Chief Executive, Glen Burley, who will focus on the Trust’s Annual Report and Accounts and key organisational activities. Trust Chairman, Russell Hardy, will also discuss the Governors report.

There will also be an opportunity to informally meet Trust Governors and members of the Board of Directors to provide feedback and to ask any questions.

The event is free but spaces are limited so please book a place by contacting the Trust’s Membership Office on: 0800 085 2471 or by emailing membership@swft.nhs.uk. Light refreshments will be included.
