As ever we’re proud to support Defend Our NHS (who are leafleting in Moreton TOMORROW- see below) and particularly keen to call out (no pun intended) the local and international trash that are making decisions about OUR NHS.
Dear friends of the NHS
This is to give notice of the Defend Our NHS Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2019 on Thursday 5th September from 7.00pm at Birkenhead Town Hall, Hamilton Square, Birkenhead, CH41 5BR.
All supporters are invited. The agenda is below. The papers for the event will be emailed to you later this week and will also be available on our Facebook page. Paper copies of these will NOT be available at the meeting. Please bring them in electronic form or print at home.
The AGM agenda is:
- Defend Our NHS (DONHS): annual report introduced by the Chair + vote to approve
- Financial position: report from the Treasurer + vote to approve
- Changes to the constitution: report from the Secretary + vote to approve
- Election of officers: nominations received + vote to elect
Nominations are invited for eight ‘officer’ posts. These are vital roles with active responsibilities to continue and develop the work of Defend Our NHS. Only individuals willing to accept the responsibilities detailed in the constitution should consider nomination. Nominations must be received (by email only to this address) by a week on Thursday (22nd August). All nominees and those voting must be listed on our database and must support the aims of DONHS.
- External relations officer
- Two research and policy officers
- Media officer
- Events coordinator
If there are insufficient nominations those who are elected will continue to act with other volunteers and will fill any posts after the meeting by invitation. This can be ratified by the next general meeting as allowed by the constitution
The short AGM will be followed by an opportunity to meet socially in the nearby Gallagher’s pub.
We will be leafleting next SATURDAY 17th August (when no storms are forecast!) in a new venue: outside the Coach and Horses pub in the centre of Moreton from 11:00am to 13:00h. Come and meet fellow NHS supporters.
Moreton is one of the walk-in centres which Wirral CCG plans to close. Our new leaflet about this is attached with another detailing the existing and growing American threats to our NHS in Wirral. Please distribute these to your contacts.
Thanks and best wishes on behalf of Defend Our NHS
