THE DART PATIENTS ANNUAL MEMBERS MEETING SCHEDULED FOR 24TH SEPTEMBER HAS BEEN POSTPONED
The PPG is sorry to have to cancel the Dart Patients annual members meeting at short notice owing to the last-minute unavailability of two key speakers. Most importantly Dr Eynon Lewis has been called to an urgent meeting in London related to his training responsibilities as Head of Primary and Community Care Education at Plymouth University and cannot attend our meeting. There is no point in holding our AMM without the GP partner who works with the PPG being present.
In addition, the decision by NHS Torbay and South Devon Hospital Trust and Clinical Commissioning Group to disband the Health and Wellbeing Working Group has been a huge disappointment. Part of our AMM was to be used to discuss progress on the Health and Wellbeing Centre project. The PPG are now waiting for the Trust and CCG to clarify how we move forward. We feel that this issue should be resolved before our AMM takes place. Holding our AMM, without clarity on next steps, will not allow for a productive discussion. The new date for the AMM will be announced when this matter has been resolved, hopefully in the near future.
