Leeds NHS AGM and Leeds Student Well Fair 2011

NHS Leeds will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Student Well Fair on Wednesday 28 September at Leeds University.

The AGM, which will run from 11am-12.30pm in University House, is an opportunity for the people of Leeds to find out about the work of NHS Leeds over the last year and to learn about what the proposed changes to the NHS mean for the city.

The Annual Report will be presented and there will be an opportunity to ask the Board questions and feed back your views.

Linda Pollard, Chair for NHS Leeds, says: "At the AGM we will take a look back at the achievements of NHS Leeds over the last financial year, including the work we have undertaken with partner organisations in the NHS, local government and community and voluntary sectors. You will hear from John Lawlor, Chief Executive, Kevin Howells Director of Finance and Dr Ian Cameron, Director of Public Health from NHS Leeds and Tom Riordan, Chief Executive of Leeds City Council."

Alongside the AGM, an interactive Student Well Fair will be running to help students find out more about their health and NHS services in the city. This is the first time NHS Leeds has held a Student Well Fair designed to provide the city's large student population with advice on healthy living and local services available to them. The event is also open to the general public.

The Student Well Fair will include stalls offering exclusive 'freebies' and advice on subjects such as sexual health, alcohol, healthy eating and much more. Free blood pressure checks will also be available for anyone who attends. The Fair will run between 10am-3.30pm in the Parkinson Building.

If you would like to attend the AGM or request directions and a map, please register your interest by email. The Student Well Fair is a free drop-in event and registration is not required, the event is open to anyone.
