Restoring Open Board meetings
The Trust has stood down public board meetings, in line with
Government safety guidance, since March 2020, due to the COVID-19
pandemic. However, after due consideration, we consider it
important that proceedings are - even virtually - held in public
for public accountability and are therefore exploring video
broadcasts as an alternative way to enable the public to access our
board meetings. Please find below the link to a video
recording of our open board meeting held on 30th
September 2020. Please find a link to the papers from the meeting
to the right of this page.
We are constrained for space for socially distanced Board
meetings on our sites. We apologise for the background noise from
the air conditioning system in our meeting room.
Our next open board meeting is on Wednesday
25th November and we will be recording it to
post a video of the meeting, shortly after it takes place.
Please check this page for details nearer the time.
We publish agendas and supporting documents in advance of the
meeting and these can be accessed by clicking on the link to the
right of this page. Please note that you may need to download
the latest version of Adobe Flash Player - this is free and
instructions will be provided if you click on the link that
appears. Depending on your device, you may then need to
select Adobe Acrobat if you see an 'open with' option.
