AGM 2015

Find out more about hospitals at our interactive AGM

Members of the public are being invited to glimpse some of the extraordinary care, procedures and treatments that are carried out every day in the county’s main hospitals in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Stroud.

Themed workshops giving the public the opportunity to experience hands-on insight into the healthcare technology which is transforming lives in our hospitals will be a key part of this year’s Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).  

This year’s event is being held in the 1873 Suite at Gloucester Rugby Club, Kingsholm Stadium on Thursday 16th July. Doors open at 5pm for 5.30pm – 7.30pm. Key highlights will include:

  • Simulation: See how clinicians train to save lives and test your skills.
  • Maternity: Learn how midwives bring new life into the world. 
  • Hearing services: Simulate hearing loss, view inside your own ear using a digital camera and test your own noise awareness. 
  • To heal or not to heal: Learn how wounds are treated and get hands on with dressings.
  • Organ donation: Learn how your organs save lives. 
  • How our hospitals save lives: Learn more about the Hospitals Trust, how resources are prioritised and how life-saving services are provided.

Dr Frank Harsent, CEO of Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will update the audience on the Trust’s performance over the past year and the key objectives for the coming year.

The event is free and open to any member of the public, but attendance is by advanced registration only. If you would like to attend, please email martin.wood@glos.nhs.uk or call him on: 0300 422 2932.
