Here is the programme:

4pm Business Meeting

5pm Presentation and discussion

The Trust's Lead Governor, David Linghorn-Baker, will give a presentation about the role of governors. His presentation will be followed by questions and discussion.

6pm-7pm Displays | Information | Meet the governors

Staff who are involved in patient support groups and volunteers who help to run the groups will be available to talk to people attending the meeting. They will have displays and information to give away.

Among the patient support groups taking part will be ICUsteps (which supports patients and relatives affected by critical illness), the Gastro-Intestinal Cancer Support Group (GICS), Colchester Myeloma Support Group and the North East Essex Urology Cancer Support Group.

In addition, there will be displays by the Macmillan Information Centre, which is later this year due to transfer from Essex County Hospital to Colchester General Hospital, and the Trust's Organ Donation Committee, which aims to raise awareness and understanding of organ donation.

You will also have an opportunity to meet some of the Trust's governors - there are 15 public governors, six staff governors and five stakeholder governors representing organisations such as Essex County Council, Colchester Garrison and local universities.

Refreshments will be provided.

While members of the public can simply turn up on the day of the Annual Members' Meeting, the Trust would prefer if people wishing to attend registered in advance. Phone Tammy Diles, Assistant Company Secretary, on 01206 742733 or email
