Members’ events

Foundation Trust members are invited to 'Your Health' seminars

Upcoming events

Our ‘Your Health’ seminars are delivered by clinicians on health topics that are of interest to our membership community, providing helpful information and advice.

This provides the opportunity for members to engage with the Trust in ways other than when just attending a hospital appointment and also this presents the opportunity for governors to meet their constituents and ensure that they represent the needs of their constituents. These health seminars alternate between the two sites.
