Members of the public will have the opportunity to put questions to the chairman and the board of directors at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Annual Members’ Meeting.

Held on Thursday 19 September from 4pm to 7pm in the King’s Mill Conference Centre at the hospital, the formal Annual Members’ Meeting will begin at 4.45pm and will end at 5.45pm, during which there will be a review of the past year and the setting out of future plans.

In addition to the formal meeting, the public are invited to attend from 4pm onwards to talk to staff and visit the marketplace of stands and interactive displays which include Newark Hospital’s new Fernwood Community Unit and Bramley Children’s Unit.
