North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust - Public Workshop and Public Board Meeting - October 2017

Thursday 26th October 2017

Venue: Parish Centre, Berwick Parish Church, Parade, Berwick-upon-Tweed, TD15 1DF.

Members of the public are invited to air their views about the ambulance service at a public Board meeting in Berwick later this month.

The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) Trust Board will hold its next meeting at the Parish Centre, Berwick Parish Church at 12.30pm.

Although Board meetings are held in public they are not public meetings. There is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions but time is restricted, given that this forms part of the formal structured meeting.

In order to ensure members of the local community are given the opportunity to have their say, NEAS is hosting a workshop before the meeting starts, from 10.30am-11.30am.

There will be a short presentation followed by a question and answer session.

All are welcome to attend, but are asked to inform Trust Secretary Jennifer Boyle of their attendance beforehand either by emailing or calling 0191 430 2001.

Please specify if you are wishing to stay for the formal public Board meeting at 12.30 so that we can ensure that a set of papers is available for you.

Lunch is not provided and anyone wishing to stay for the Board meeting is advised to bring their own lunch.

The agenda and papers for the Board meeting will be available on this webpage in the run up to the meeting.

North East Ambulance Service chairman Ash Winter said: “We are part of the community and it is important to us to take our monthly board meetings out on the road to give members of the public the chance to hear what is happening with their ambulance service.

“We know there is great strength of feeling about the ambulance service in Berwick and the wider community and so wanted to ensure anyone wishing to come along had the chance to ask questions and speak to our Board members directly.”
