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
Unfortunately due to a software issue the recording of our May
Open Board Meeting failed but the minutes are availabile in the
July papers on the right had side. To view the recording of our
March Open Board Meeting click here
Our next open board meeting is on Wednesday 29th
September 2021 and if able, 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
