It runs services like mental health care at various sites in Hampshire, Dorset, Oxfordshire, and Buckinghamshire and has faced major criticism in the last year.

It's after it came out hundreds of deaths had not been properly investigated.

Last week, after months of pressure, chief exec Katrina Percy - finally stepped down but, she's staying on at the Trust in a different role and is understood to be on the same salary.

Tim Smart, Interim Chair of Southern Health, said: “Each year we are pleased to give our members, our patients, and our local population the opportunity to learn more about Southern Health, and to ask questions about our performance and our plans.

“The Trust has faced many challenges since our last Annual Members’ Meeting and we know that we need to work hard to restore confidence in the services we provide, and respond to regulators' criticisms of the Trust."

The meeting will take place at the Development and Training Centre, Tatchbury Mount, Calmore, SO40 2RZ, between 6pm and 7pm.
