Trust Board Meetings

Under normal circumstances, our Trust Board meetings are held in public and there are opportunities to provide feedback and ask questions. However, we are now undertaking the Trust Board meetings virtually and whilst we are still keen to receive your questions and feedback, we will only be able to respond to questions at the meeting if we receive them in advance. 

If you would like to ask the Board a question, please do so in writing to For us to be able to provide responses to your questions at the Trust Board meetings we ask that you submit your questions no later than 48 hours before the meeting commences.

We do look forward to being in a position to reinstate physical meetings in the future, where members of the public can attend and be more included in the proceedings. In the meantime, our Board Meetings will continue to be live-streamed. A link to join the meeting will be published below, before the meeting date. We would be grateful if you would let us know if you would like to observe the meeting, by confirming via
