Last night was our Annual General Meeting and Social event.
As always it was wonderful catching up with friends and members old and new from our branch and those from our sister health branches from BSUH and CSH Trusts.
However it was also a rather more special AGM than those in previous years, with Peter Atkinson our long satnding Branch Secretary departing from his role.
Peter (right, with incoming Branch Secretary Nick McMaster) oversaw the merger of three branches during the formation of Sussex Partnership. He has been a dedicated and diligent officer who has gone way beyond the call of duty in representing the Branch through difficult times in the NHS.
Thankfully Peter will remain active in the Branch in his other officer roles and c...ontinue to lead in representing our West Sussex and Hampshire members.
Thanks Peter. It has been emotional!
