Board

Our board meetings

Open meetings

The Board is committed to conducting its business in an open and transparent way. The majority of Board business will therefore be carried out in public. Items will automatically be listed for inclusion in the open agenda unless the test outlined above indicates debate in a closed session is required.

Closed meetings

Meetings closed to the public will be to consider items that are not suitable for debate in public at the time of the meeting (or at all) such as (but not limited to):

  • Issues which are commercially sensitive or may negatively impact upon the trust’s commercial interests.
  • Reports containing personal information that would breach the Trust’s duty of confidentiality e.g identification of patients or staff.
  • Information obtained or provided in confidence. 
  • Items which are professionally or legally privileged.

Reports of serious untoward incidents will routinely be taken in closed sessions. Minutes of closed Board meetings held will not be published.

How, where and when?

Board meetings will be held on the *last Wednesday of each month. It will meet initially in closed format for a maximum period of two hours. Directors will agree during the course of the meeting which items can then be reported as outcomes during the open public session.

The open meeting will follow. Agenda and supporting reports for all meetings held in the presence of the public will be made available on the Trust’s website seven days before the meeting.

Meetings will be held at different locations across the Trust’s footprint, in NHS facilities where they are available. Details of upcoming meetings will be announced on the Trust’s website and via the staff e-newsletter CWPessential, with a request that staff display notice of the meeting in waiting areas and staff rooms.

*excepting August when there will be no meeting, when the final Wednesday falls within a school holiday period and in December when the meeting will be held on the second or third Wednesday.
