The people of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland will have the opportunity to see how decisions affecting local hospital services are made in a series of public board meetings.
The first takes place on 27 March 2014 at the Voluntary Action LeicesterShire on Newarke Street in the city centre.
Karl Mayes, Patient and Public Involvement Manager at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said: “By holding our monthly Trust Board meetings away from the hospital, we hope the meetings will be accessible to the people that use our services. It will be a good opportunity to see our senior team in action.” More »
The Board meeting starts at 12.30pm and will finish around 4.30pm.
If you are interested in attending please contact Karl Mayes, patient and public involvement manager, on 0116 258 8685 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further public board meetings will take place across the county over the next 12 months. » Less
