A number of departments from Crewe’s Leighton Hospital will also be holding displays.


Mike Smith of the Congleton Partnership said: “We are pleased to be holding another health and wellbeing fair in Congleton following the success of previous events. We are also delighted to be working in partnership with both Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Cheshire East Council this year. The event is a great opportunity to find out about health and wellbeing support options available in the local area.”


The Trust, which runs Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich and Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford, will also be holding its Annual Members’ Meeting following the fair.


Members of the Trust, along with the general public, are invited to join the Board of Directors and Council of Governors to find out the latest about the Trust, its sites and its achievements during 2017/18.


Dennis Dunn MBE, Chairman of the Trust, said: “Our Annual Members’ Meeting provides a wonderful opportunity for local people to engage with their local hospitals, ask any questions they have, meet the staff who work there and learn more about the service improvements that have taken place over the last year.


“The event is open to everybody, and attendees can also find out how they can become Members of the Trust in order to have their say on local healthcare, how facilities are run and how they can be developed in the future.”

The Annual Members’ Meeting will begin at 12.30pm with lunch available for those who attend.
