Meeting held in public of the Board of NHS Cheshire and Merseyside

The Board of NHS Cheshire and Merseyside holds its meetings in public (but these are not public meetings). As such we do our utmost to ensure that these meetings take place in publicly accessible locations and buildings across Cheshire and Merseyside.

All Board meetings held in public are live-streamed via our YouTube channel to enable those who are unable to attend in person to observe the meeting, with recordings of these meetings also made accessible via our Meeting and Event Archive.

Prior to the start of each meeting held in public of the Board there will be a total period of 30 minutes allocated for members of the public to speak to the Board. Individual members of the public may speak for up to 2 minutes, but the Chair will have discretion to vary this requirement where they consider it appropriate. 

Members of the public wishing to speak to the Board are required to provide notice of this at least three clear working days in advance of the meeting and individuals should outline what it is they would like to speak to the Board about. Notification of a request to speak to the Board should be submitted to Board@cheshireandmerseyside.nhs.uk.

Questions from members of the public who are unable to attend meetings of the Board and with regards to an agenda item being discussed at a meeting will also be accepted in advance of the relevant meeting.

These questions will be responded to by the Board in writing following its meeting to the individual(s) who submitted the question(s) and also published on the ICB website. 

If you would like to raise a question with regards to an agenda item, this needs to be submitted in writing to Board@cheshireandmerseyside.nhs.uk no later than three working days prior to the meeting. Questions must only relate to matters within the powers and functions of the Board.

It should be noted that the Board will not respond at its meetings within the Public Speaking Time section or in response to questions submitted if it deemed that this:

  • relates to quasi-judicial matters e.g. (current or potential legal proceedings or consultations)
  • relates to confidential or exempt matter
  • is not about a matter for which the Board has responsibility
  • is defamatory, frivolous, factually incorrect or offensive
  • is directly about party political matters

Further details about submitting questions to the Board can be found below. Members of the public are advised to read this information before submitting a question to the Board of NHS Cheshire and Merseyside.
