EUF AGM (Annual general Meeting)
Venue and details to be confirmed
On 27 May 2011, EUF will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Melting Pot on Rose Street. The theme of the AGM this year is a celebration of our user-led research and how it has changed things for the better!
The consultation on the draft strategy, ’A Sense of Belonging’ for mental health (2011-2016) has now finished. The team will soon produce a summary of the strategy for the NHS Lothian Board to get it approved. Once this is done, a final strategy document will be produced.
At our next meeting, we will catch up on the many developments that have taken place since the beginning of 2011.
At our next meeting, Linda Irvine, NHS Lothian Strategic Programme Manager for Mental Health and Wellbeing will come and discuss the Mental Health Strategy for 2011–2016 called 'A Sense of Belonging'.
We didn’t have a copy of the draft strategy at our last meeting and decided that we would invite Linda back to our February meeting. This would give us a chance to have a look at the strategy in detail.
Exceptionally the meeting will take place on the second Saturday of the month as 1 January is a holiday.
At our next meeting, Linda Irvine, NHS Lothian Strategic Programme Manager for Mental Health and Wellbeing, will come and present the draft strategy for Lothian’s Joint Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2010-2015.
