Trust Board business meetings are open to all staff and the public.
Please note that due to the increasing pressures on operations caused by the growing and severe impact of COVID on ELFT services, there will be no Public Board meeting on 28 January 2021. The Board will meet for a session in private, focusing on essential and time-bound business, in particular on winter planning including COVID-19 and the integrated performance report.
In line with guidance on fighting the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and in the interests of protecting our service users, patients and staff, we will be holding our Trust Board meetings (in public) virtually using Zoom and members of the public are welcome to join us. The link to the meeting will be published on the website a week prior to the meeting.
All papers will continue to be published on our website prior to the meeting date and members of the public are invited to submit questions to the Board in line with the Trust’s normal process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that dates and times may be subject to change, so please check back regularly for updates.
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.
By attending the meeting you are agreeing that you will not record in either video or audio format the meeting in whole or part.
In keeping with ELFT’s values, we ask all participants to respect the Chair and the speakers at the meeting; to listen with interest and an open mind.
