FEEDBACK sessions are being put on by a hospital trust to gauge public option to help it achieve foundation trust status.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust (PHT), which runs Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, is holding meetings so people can talk to the trust’s elected council of governors.

At each meeting there will be a presentation from the trust’s medical director Simon Holmes.

Achieving foundation trust would give PHT more of a say on how QA should be run.

The meetings take place at the following dates, locations and times:

· Thursday, May 10, Lecture Theatre, Education Centre, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, from 7pm to 9pm.

· Tuesday, May 15, Emsworth Community Association, Church Path, Emsworth, from 7pm to 9pm.

· Tuesday, May 22, Octagon Lounge, Ferneham Hall, Osborn Road, Fareham, from 7pm to 9pm.

· Wednesday, May 30, Gosport Methodist Hall, Stoke Road, Gosport, from 2pm to 4pm.
