Important information regarding Public Board meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic
In light of the restrictions introduced by the Government to limit the spread of COVID-19, the St George’s Board of Directors will – as a temporary measure – hold its meetings virtually in the coming months. Regrettably, face-to-face meetings involving members of the public cannot take place in light of the restrictions. During this period of heightened pressure on NHS Trusts, agendas for our Board meetings will also be streamlined to the most critical business.
The Trust is committed to maintaining transparency and accountability to the public during this period. As a result, we will continue to publish the papers for our public Board meeting on our website. We will welcome questions from the public submitted at least 24 hours before the meeting to Board@stgeorges.nhs.uk. Our Governors will also be able to submit questions to the Board. As soon as possible following our Board meetings, we will publish to our website a summary of key decisions and actions agreed by the Board, along with the answers to any questions from members of the public. While we recognise that this doesn’t make up for the fact that the public will not be able to come along to our meetings, we hope this enables you to continue to see how the Board is taking decisions at this critical time.
Given the uncertainty as to how long the current restrictions will be required, the position set out above will remain in place until further notice. However, we look forward to welcoming back members of the public to our Board meetings as soon as the necessary steps to limit the transmission of COVID-19 are lifted.
