Changes to public meetings

Public Board Meetings

In line with NHS guidance and Government social isolation measures, the Trust’s public Board meetings are now being held virtually rather than face-to-face. These meetings will have reduced agendas focusing on key matters only, rather than the usual breadth of items. This releases management capacity and resources across the Trust at this pressured time.

The next Board meeting will be held virtually on 7 May 2020.  For the reasons outlined above members of the public will not be able to attend. The Board minutes will be added to the Trust’s website as soon as is practical after the meeting.

Public Council of Governors Meeting - 23 April 2020

Again in line with NHS guidance, for reasons of social isolation, the public Council of Governors meeting scheduled for 23 April 2020 is cancelled. The Trust has put in place arrangements to keep the governors updated on the Trust response to COVID-19.

Annual General Meeting - 15 July 2020

The annual members’ meeting scheduled for 15 July 2020 is being deferred until later in the year and further details will be shared once a new date is confirmed.
