Hampshire residents were given the chance to learn about plans and progress at Southern Health's latest Annual Members Meeting.
Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust held its Annual Members Meeting on Thursday 30 September. The event highlighted how the Trust continues to respond to the ongoing challenges of COVID-19, as well as showcasing some of the new ways it is supporting patients, carers and staff.
Some of the highlights from the night included leaning more about the major refurbishments to our mental health facilities, including Poppy Ward at Gosport War Memorial Hospital and Cherry Ward at Parklands Hospital. We also showcased our innovative work in housing, with Jonathan Pritchard, Associate Director of Housing, talking about how the Trust is supporting patients to find suitable accommodation so they don’t remain in hospital any longer than they need.
You can watch a full recording of the meeting below as well as checking out individual videos from the night. The videos and the evening were co-produced with Drop The Mask a local community interest company (CIC) specialising in digital production and run by people with lived experience of mental health issues.
