Everyone is welcome to attend the annual meeting of East Kent Hospitals Trust, which takes place on Tuesday, 3 September.

The meeting gives people a chance to meet our governors and the Board of Directors, hear about some of the services provided in our hospitals and ask questions.

Professor Stephen Smith, Chairman of the Trust, said he was hoping for a good attendance.

He said: “The annual meeting is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the work of the Trust and the services we provide to patients.

“As ever, it’s been a busy and challenging year but there have been some real highlights and some fantastic examples of the ways our staff go above and beyond to make patients feel cared for, safe and respected.

“I would love to see a good turn out from our community to show their support and gratitude to our staff.”

The meeting takes place on Tuesday, 3 September at Canterbury Cricket Club’s St Lawrence Ground, Old Dover Road, Canterbury.

There will be refreshments and a chance to browse information stands from 5.30pm, and the meeting starts at 6.30pm.

The meeting will include presentations on how we are preventing falls; the I Can campaign to get patients up, dressed and mobile; our past performance and future aims and we will hear from our lead governor Sarah Andrews. There will be a question and answer session on the issues covered, and the meeting will finish by 8pm.
