News: Members' Focus Groups dates in February
A previous Members' Focus Group in Bexley

Our Chair Dave Mellish has invited members of Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to join him and our governors at this year's Members' Focus Groups.

Come along to find out what we've been doing over the last year and what we're planning to do this year; help us shape our priorities for 2015/16; tell us where you think we can do things better, and what you think we're doing well.

You will also hear the latest news about Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup, including the new centres we're building for people with cancer and kidney problems.

The NHS touches all of us in one way or another, so there's no better way to help influence our services than by having your say.

Dave said: “Sadly, these Members' Focus Groups will be my last as Chair, as I will be retiring from the trust in October this year. Therefore I hope to see as many of you as possible at these member events - your views are important to us.”

You can come along to any (or all) of our Members' Focus Groups. There are three of them:

The first will be in Bexley on 3 February 2015, 3pm-5pm, The Boathouse, Danson Park, Danson Road, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 8HL.

The second will be in Greenwich on 10 February, 6pm-8pm, Greenwich Heritage Centre, Artillery Square, Royal Arsenal, Woolwich SE18 6ST.

The third will be in Bromley on 23 February 2015, 3pm-5pm, Community House, South Street, Bromley BR1 1RH.

Light refreshments will be available. If you are coming along, please let us know which focus group you're attending.
