This year saw our first ever virtual Annual General Meeting, which added an extra challenge to the event but we hope those who attended will agree we managed to overcome.
The coronavirus has affected every aspect of our lives and our ability to meet with local people and our stakeholders and partners is included in that. Nevertheless we went online and we were extremely grateful to the 106 people who came together on Zoom to hear our review of 2019/20, our achievements and the challenges we faced and are continuing to face.
Of course coronavirus (COVID-19) overshadows what we do now and what we have been doing for most of 2020, but it was unknown during the bulk of the year 2019/20. During that period we continued to work with our partners and local people to design and provide high-quality services, working within our budget and meeting the majority of our key performance targets.
We know there are areas where we continue to have challenges and we are committed to continuing to strive towards the best possible services and outcomes in all areas. This determination was demonstrated in our Medicines Management Team being part of a national award for patient safety, while our Finance Team jointly won an award for Finance Team of the Year. For the CCG as a whole, 2019/20 saw us being rated as Outstanding for the third year in a row by NHS England.
2019/20 also saw the creation of the Frimley Collaborative of CCGs and some significant changes at the top, with the creation of a joint Executive across our CCG, East Berkshire and Surrey Heath CCGs. We welcomed Dr Andy Brooks as our Clinical Chief Officer and since then we have also welcomed Daryl Gasson as our Executive Managing Director.
Many thanks to our Andy and Daryl and to our Clinical Lead Dr Steven Clarke and our Public and Patient Engagement Lead Kathy Atkinson for their online presenting skills and to Clinical Director Dr Martin Ballard for presenting and compering the event.

Another first was that the AGM was during office hours. While this enabled many people to attend we recognise that work commitments may have prevented others from joining. If you were unable to attend and are interested in what was said, you can view a recording of the event here.
