From our regular Board meetings to our Annual Public Meeting, we host a number of events that our patients, visitors and members of the public can attend and get involved with.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) open day

Saturday 5 October 2019 from 10am to 2pm.

The Gastroenterology Department at St Helier Hospital would like to invite you to attend the second Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) open day. The event is for patients and health care professionals to increase awareness of IBD and the care provided by St Helier hospital.

We hope you will find this a fantastic opportunity to meet our team and to discuss how we can improve the service for our patients. Please see the attached flyer for more information, or contact Preeja Kugathasan, IBD Nurse Specialist on: 07831 120969 or by email at

Upcoming Board meetings

Board meetings are held in public at either St Helier or Epsom Hospital. You are welcome to attend the meetings and listen to the discussions that take place. 

Please be aware that all public board meetings will be filmed and that this footage, including the questions asked, will be made available on the Trust's website. Our filming will continue to be strategically arranged so the camera is fixed on members of the Trust Board and not on any members of the public.
