    Annual Public Meeting of Sutton and Merton Primary Care Trust.

    Time: 2.00pm – 3.00pm formal AGM 3.00pm – 4.20pm presentations on PCT’s activities

    The purpose of the meeting is to present to the public the Trust’s annual report and annual accounts for 2008-9. There will be a chance for questions and answers at the end of each session. The theme of this year’s AGM is how we can help you get the most out of the local NHS, and keynote speakers will include a local GP, pharmacist and a representative of the local voluntary sector. We have attached a flier to promote the AGM, and would be grateful if you could display this in a public place to encourage others to attend.

    At the AGM, we will be changing our name from Sutton and Merton Primary Care Trust (PCT) to NHS Sutton and Merton. This is to reflect our role as leaders of the local NHS, and to help the public understand what we do.

    Light refreshments will be available at the meeting. Please let us know if you can attend so that we can confirm numbers for catering. If you have any questions about the Annual Public Meeting, please contact the Communications Department on 020 8251 0512 or email: communications@smpct.nhs.uk.

    Kay Sonneborn,
    Chairman, Sutton and Merton PCT

    Wimbledon Business Forum

    We will be talking about the Wimbledon Station Access Scheme for which we are seeking financial support from Transport for London through the STEP Bid procedure. We will be outlining the current issues faced by existing station users and the plan to implement a set of improvements before the 2012 Olympics.

    The forum is for all Wimbledon based businesses and is free to attend. If you would like to attend, please email tracy@wimbledontowncentre.co.uk with the names of those wishing to attend from your company or book directly online.

    Making Wimbledon better for business means listening to the businesses and giving them a place to come together where they can raise the issues that concern them or that affect their business, and most importantly where they can get some answers or some resolution. That is exactly what the aim of the Wimbledon Business Forum is.

    We encourage all businesses to let us know in advance of the issues they want to raise, such as crime, grafitti, parking, etc., so that we can ensure that the appropriate person (whether from the Council or the Police) is present at the forum. The forum is for you – the Wimbledon business – and we urge you to guide the agenda by letting us know what your issues are.

    The format of the forum is a short networking period (including buffet breakfast) followed by a theatre-style forum where we follow an agenda which has been built by the businesses who are attending. Notes and actions are taken and will be addressed in the next forum, so that we can all ensure that we’re not just talking about things, we’re doing things to work towards making Wimbledon better for business.
