Trust Chairman, Professor Paul Keane, OBE, said, "Anyone wishing to come along will be welcome, it's an opportunity to hear from our Trust Board as we look back on our performance in 2018/19 - there will also be an open question and answer session. 

"We're one of the largest integrated care providers in England, serving a population of around 650,000 and employing over 7,000 people. In addition to Durham, our hospitals include Darlington Memorial and Bishop Auckland Hospitals plus community hospitals in Shotley Bridge, Chester le Street, Weardale, Sedgefield and The Richardson Hospital, Barnard Castle.
