Troubled Trust holds AGM

NHS BOSSES will take questions from the public at a meeting on Tuesday (September 20).

The Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust annual general meeting will be held at East Surrey Hospital from 2.30pm.

The Trust was in the headlines in July, when a controversial Facebook post by Henry Smith MP claimed East Surrey Hospital’s A&E ward was ‘crap’.

The same hospital has also been criticised over the care it gave to 80 year old Khaleel ‘Ken’ Rasheed, who died there last year.

At the meeting, staff will present their annual report and accounts, and set out their plans for the future.

Afterwards, members of the audience will be invited to ask questions about the trust’s results and achievements.

The meeting will be held in the Post Graduate Education Centre lecture theatre at East Surrey Hospital.
