Important Information

While under normal circumstances the public is welcome to attend our Part A Governing Body meetings, Government social distancing requirements relating to the Covid19 pandemic constitute ‘special reasons’ to avoid face to face gatherings.

Until further notice, all Governing Body meetings will be held virtually by default.  We are happy to take any public questions received electronically (in advance) at the beginning of the meeting.  However, we may need to defer any questions should the focus of the meeting need to be prioritised in relation to Covid-19.

Although it will not be possible for you to join the virtual meeting, we will record the public section of the meeting and load it to the website for members of the public to see.

Questions should be succinct and relevant to general health care commissioning; they should not raise personal or individual issues.  So we can reply as fully as possible, we ask that public questions are submitted on the Public Questions Form (at the bottom of the page) at least three working days in advance of the meeting via e-mail to: kathy.palfrey@nhs.net

A response will be sent directly to the individual who raised the question and will also be put on a Q & A section on this page to enable members of the public to view.  Part A agenda papers and minutes will continue to be published under the relevant meeting date as normal.


The next Governing Body Meeting

Our next virtual Governing Body meeting will be held on 18 June 2020.

Papers will be published in our resource area five days in advance of the meeting. If you wish to submit a public question, please use the Public Questions Form (below) and send via e-mail to kathy.palfrey@nhs.net by midday on Wednesday, 17 June 2020.


Papers from previous meetings can be provided on request, please contact us for further information.
