In this special 70th anniversary year for the NHS, the Trust’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be an opportunity to reflect and celebrate not only the past year, but the important history of the NHS and Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT).

The free event will take place at The Ark, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital, on Tuesday 17 July and is open to all. The exhibition gets underway at 5:30pm, giving visitors the chance to find out more about the work that goes on across the Trust.

There will be an interactive exhibition where you can practice performing CPR and brush up on your first aid skills with our clinical skills team and find out more about the equipment used to perform critical testing at the patient bedside in our hospitals. You will be able to meet hospital staff and the Trust’s elected governors and find out more about our services and future plans.

The AGM presentation, where you can hear about the Trust’s performance in 2017/18, begins at 7:00pm, after which consultant physician Professor John Ramage will deliver a talk on research and innovation at Hampshire Hospitals; past, present and future.

Professor Ramage is a consultant physician in the gastroenterology department at HHFT as well as Kings College Hospitals and lead clinician for the Kings Health Partners, Kent and Hampshire Hospitals Centre of Excellence for Neuroendocrine Tumours.

He is deputy research director for the Trust, and lead for the collaboration between HHFT and Winchester University. He is visiting Professor at Winchester University, Chair of the UK Society for Neuroendocrine Tumours (UKINETS) and on the executive board for the European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society.
