Guidelines for members of the public observing Board meetings held in public
In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Government set out social distancing measures to reduce social interaction in order to reduce the transmission of the virus.
In accordance with this advice, and direction from Welsh Government, the Health Board made the decision in March 2020 to hold its Board meetings virtually. Virtual Board meetings continued until the end of March 2022.
From 26 May 2022, the Health Board is resuming "in person" Board meetings. Further details regarding the locations of our future Board meetings will be published under the Board meetings section of our webpage..
Any members of the public who are interested in observing any of our public Board meetings are asked to register their interest beforehand by emailing Nathan.Saunders2@wales.nhs.uk. You will then be provided with guidelines for observing.
The public Board meetings will be organised in a way that allows members of the public to observe the proceedings and Board discussion, but it is important to stress that these are meetings that take place in public and are not public meetings, which means that those members of the public who join the meeting cannot take part.
In order to manage meetings effectively, no provision is given for members of the public to ask questions during the meeting.
Members of the public are in attendance as observers, and should anyone have any questions, they may submit a written question via Nathan.Saunders2@wales.nhs.uk prior to the meeting.
The agenda and papers for the meeting are available 10 days before the day of the meeting and can be accessed below.
Please note, that for the time being our Board Committee meetings will continue to take place virtually. Please see the Committees and Advisory Groups section of our webpage for further information relating to our Board Committee meetings
