Light refreshments will be available and copies of the Annual Report for the year will be available at the meeting.

Dr. Kiran Patel, Chair of NHS Bury CCG said: “The AGM is our opportunity to highlight activities and progress made during the last year, as well as talking about our plans for the future.  We feel we have made some good progress during the last year, but there is obviously more to do and there are lots of developments planned moving forward.  The exhibition prior to the AGM is one not to be missed with a wide range of teams and services available to talk to local people about their work.  This is an opportunity for local people to learn more about our work, the work of our partners and to get involved.”
