The public are invited to hear about plans for Pilgrims Hospices in east Kent at the Queens Hall, Winter Gardens, Margate, on Monday, June 9. Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Chief executive Steve Auty, medical director Dr Claire Butler and chairman of the board of trustees Dr Richard Morey, will present their plans for the future of the hospice and take questions from Thanet residents.

Mr Auty said: “We want to give people in Thanet a chance to hear about our plans for the future and ask us any questions they may have about them.

“We want people to understand how and why we have come up with the plans for the future, and what this means for how we deliver care in Thanet and across east Kent.

“We also want to take the opportunity to listen to any concerns people may have.”
