Annual General Meeting

Taking place at Health and Care Innovation Expo on Wednesday 5 September, the AGM incorporated the Kate Granger Awards for Compassionate Care.

Attendees heard from NHS England’s Chairman, Professor Sir Malcom Grant CBE, Chief Executive Simon Stevens, who presented the year’s Annual Report, and the Accounts were presented by NHS England’s Chief Financial Officer, Paul Baumann CBE.

The Kate Granger Awards for Compassionate Care are named after Dr Kate Granger, who sadly passed away in 2016. Kate worked tirelessly to raise awareness around compassion in the NHS through her #hellomynameis social media campaign.

The awards were presented by a judging panel that will include but not limited to Kate’s close friend and colleague Dr Natalie Silvey, Kate’s husband, Chris Pointon and Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer for England.

The NHS England Board is committed to openness and transparency, and conducts as much of its business as possible in a session that members of the public are welcome to attend and observe, subject to available space.
