THE Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA) is inviting the public to come and join its chairman, chief executive, board of directors and governors, for a joint annual members and public meeting.

The annual meeting gives the public the opportunity to find out more about how the NCA performed over the last financial year, key activities, achievements, challenges, and the organisation’s plans for the future.

This year attendees will also get the opportunity to hear from a selection of staff speakers who will give short five minute talks about the exciting work they have been doing over the last year at the NCA’s four care organisations, Salford, Oldham, Bury & Rochdale, and North Manchester.

The event will be held on Monday 14 October from 6pm until 7:30pm in the Humphrey Booth Lecture Theatre, 1st Floor, Mayo Building, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, M6 8HD. On-site parking will be reimbursed for this event.

A light supper will be served in the reception area of the Mayo Building from 5:30pm. Members of the public will be able to browse information tables and find out more about exciting research projects, meet governors and provide feedback about the NCA’s hospitals and community services.

The Northern Care Alliance NHS Group brings together the Salford Royal and Pennine Acute trusts and runs hospitals and community healthcare services in Salford, Oldham, Bury, Rochdale and North Manchester.
