Council of Governors meetings are open to all, and we very much welcome participation from Trust service users, carers, staff and members of the public.

The agenda and relevant documents are published on this page in advance of the meeting date, and you are invited to submit questions to the meeting in line with the Trust's normal process.

In line with guidance on fighting the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our service users, patients and staff, we are currently unable to hold Council meetings in public at this time, and so they will continue to be held virtually until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming back members of the public to meetings in person as soon as the necessary steps to limit the transmission of COVID-19 are lifted.
