Annual Members' Meeting 2011

BBC Essex presenter Sadie Nine

Tuesday 13 September | 4pm onwards | Colchester General Hospital

Updated 2 September 2011 (with Agenda, press release and fourth panel member)

Local people, our public and staff members, as well as representatives of interested organisations, can comment on their health services and listen to what senior staff, governors and directors have to say about the past year.

This year, as well as the formal business meeting of the Trust, we are planning a range of interactive activities and presentations.

Annual meeting with a difference!

BBC Essex presenter Sadie Nine (pictured) will host a Question Time event at the annual meeting of the NHS trust that runs Colchester's acute hospitals.

Sadie will play the David Dimbleby role to a four-strong panel who will answer questions* about current NHS issues from members of the public.

The Board of Directors and governors from the Members' Council will all be at the meeting in Training Block South (map) at Colchester General Hospital.

The Trust, which runs Colchester General Hospital and Essex County Hospital, is hoping to attract as many members of the public as possible.

Question Time

The Question Time panel includes:

Anne Brown

* To submit a question about a current NHS issue to the Question Time panel, please email by 5pm on Thursday 8 September.
