The Annual General Meeting of ²gether NHS Foundation Trust is being held on Thursday July 21.

The event, which is being held at Cheltenham Town Hall from 5 until 8pm, is open to all.

Trust Chief Executive Shaun Clee said:  “Our AGM provides an opportunity for us to review everything we achieved and the challenges we met during 2015 to 2016.

“We will also be highlighting the main priorities we will focus on throughout 2016 and into 2017, so it’s an opportunity for anyone with an interest in our Trust and our work to come along and get involved.

“Mental health affects all of us in some way – whether we are experiencing mental ill health ourselves, supporting someone who is, or just keen to tackle stigma and ensure that people who need mental health support can get the help they need.

“I would encourage anyone with an interest in or appreciation of mental health issues in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire to come along.”

The meeting will feature presentations as well as an opportunity to visit information stands and ask questions.

A financial review of 2015/16 will form part of the proceedings. Copies of the Trust’s Annual Report and Accounts 2015/16 will also be available.

If you would like to attend or would like to receive further information, please contact Anna Hilditch, Assistant Trust Secretary on 01452 894165 or anna.hilditch@nhs.net
