Trust Board Meetings

The Trust Board is committed to openness and transparency, and members of our local communities are welcome to observe meetings of the Board of Directors that are held in public.

Please read the important information below on options available for observing our Board meetings in public, noting in particular the advance registration requirement for observing in person.

Trust Board meetings in public are held every two months on a Thursday morning, from 0930-1330hrs, in the Shropshire Education and Conference Centre (SECC), Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. There are two options available for observing the meeting, as follows:

  • Option a. Remote access via the livestream of the meeting. The livestream link for each meeting can be accessed below.
  • Option b. A seat can be reserved in the meeting room on the day by following the advance registration process below:
  • Email the Board Coordinator at trustboardsecretary@nhs.net by 1700hrs five working days before each meeting, providing your name, organisation if applicable, and contact telephone number.
  • You will receive an acknowledgement of your email and confirmation that a seat has been allocated to you (allocation will be on a first come, first served basis, and we are unable to accept requests after the deadline quoted above).
  • Please note that seating is limited due to space restrictions. Anyone arriving on the day without having reserved a seat in advance will only be able to gain access if all pre-registered seating has not been allocated – a space on the day without advance registration is not guaranteed.
  • Members of the public will be admitted to the meeting room from 0920hrs. Please wait in the reception area of SECC if you arrive before that time.

We encourage people to engage with the Trust via written questions arising directly from the papers presented to each Board meeting, which can be submitted via the Trust’s website following each meeting. Please click here for details on how to submit a question for the Board.

There may also be a requirement to hold a private meeting of the Board on the same day, when the Board of Directors will need to consider confidential agenda items that cannot be disclosed in the public domain. In these situations, the meeting will be held privately (in accordance with section 1(2) of Public Bodies Admission to Meetings Act 1960).
