St George’s Healthcare’s 2011 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Thursday 29th September starting at 18.00hrs.

The evening will include presentations looking back at 2010/11 and forward to the year ahead. Staff will then make short presentations about key areas of work and patients will be invited to share their experiences. After questions and comments to the trust chair, the meeting will end with the presentation of our annual Special Achievement Awards for staff who have made an outstanding contribution in the past year. Light refreshments will be served at the end of the AGM.

Naaz Coker, St George’s Healthcare chair, said: “2010/11 was a year of significant developments for the trust including becoming operational as a major trauma centre and hyper-acute stroke unit and integrating with community services Wandsworth. Our consultation to become a Foundation Trust (FT) was also launched and to date we have over 11,000 members. Our financial position remained challenging and going forward we must address this if we are to achieve FT status by 2013.”

The meeting will take place in the Monckton Theatre, ground floor, Grosvenor Wing, St George’s Hospital, Blackshaw Road, Tooting, SW17 OQT.
