  • Healthy lifestyles

  • Rapid Response Service

  • Children’s Health

The formal session will include an overview of the Trust’s financial position, a summary of key achievements over the last 12 months and a look ahead to future plans for community services.

Chair Ingrid Barker said: “This event offers people the chance to get a full overview of the wide-ranging work of our Trust and to meet and question members of the board about the services which matter to them. I’m looking forward to meeting and hearing from the communities we serve.”

Members of the public will also have an opportunity to put questions to members of the Trust board.

The meeting will be at Blackfriars in Gloucester, with the exhibition running from 3pm to 4.30pm and the formal session between 5pm and 6pm.
