Members of the public invited to East Cheshire NHS Trust’s AGM 2018

By on June 28, 2018

East Cheshire NHS Trust’s Annual General Meeting will take place at 1.45pm on Thursday, July 5th on the Macclesfield Hospital site.

Members of the public, stakeholders and trust staff are welcome to attend the event to hear about the trust’s activity and performance during 2017/18 on a day which also marks the 70th anniversary of the NHS.

The AGM will hear about progress in developing “Care Communities” which are being established across the local area in order to deliver better out-of-hospital care to patients and prevent unnecessary admissions to hospitals.

The Care Communities involve people from primary, health and social care working together in order to deliver a streamlined service with the patient at its heart. Patients will experience more seamless care closer to their own homes, delivered by health and social care professionals who understand their needs.

Five Care Communities have been formed so far, based on their geography and population size. These are:

·         Knutsford;

·         Bollington, Disley and Poynton,

·         Macclesfield,

·         Congleton and Holmes Chapel and;

·         Chelford, Handforth, Alderley and Wilmslow.

The AGM will last around an hour and be immediately followed by the monthly meeting of the trust’s board, which members of the public are also welcome to attend. The board meeting takes place from 3pm to 5pm in the same venue – Boardroom 1, New Alderley House, Macclesfield District General Hospital, SK10 3BL.

If you would like to get in touch with the board, please email Fiona Baker, Corporate Affairs and Executive Office Manager, via:
