The Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is organising a series of roadshows and will be at The Lights in Andover on Tuesday 21st October.
The Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Annual General Meeting will take place on Tuesday 9 September 2014, in The Ark Conference Centre at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital.
The evening will begin with an interactive exhibition by staff from 5:30pm – 6:30pm. Visitors will be able to test their hand hygiene, find out how staff plan menus to feed thousands of patients across three hospitals each year and even experience one of the Foundation Trust’s new reminiscence pods which assist with the care of patients with dementia. Other stands will give visitors information including women’s health, cancer services and what it is like to work for Hampshire Hospitals.
The formal Annual General Meeting will begin at 6:45pm and will include a review of the year 2013/14 and an update on the Foundation Trust’s future plans to centralise care of the sickest patients and create sustainable local hospital services for the future.
Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust runs Andover War Memorial Hospital, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, as well as providing community services at Chase Hospital in Bordon and Alton Community hospital. The Foundation Trust serves a population of more than 600,000 people in Hampshire and parts of West Berkshire.

“I am really looking forward to sharing how we have achieved this and other developments over the past year and to spending some time discussing our future plans.”
“If you are able to attend the AGM I know you will also find the exhibition that our staff give up their time to produce very informative and interesting. If you can’t make the AGM we look forward to seeing you when we come to your area in September or October.“
