THE public are being invited to attend Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust’s annual general meeting next week.

Some of the highlights of the last year include:

• The trust achieved financial break-even, delivering 8% savings and a £1.7million surplus

• Over 95 per cent of people treated felt the care they received was excellent or good, according to the latest independent survey

The AGM will also look to the future, running through what lies ahead for the trust in 2013.

The meeting takes place in the Chichester Boardroom at North Devon District Hospital on Tuesday, September 4, starting at 6pm.
