Board of Director Meetings

Board of Directors Meetings
Agendas and Papers


The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be held on:

Wednesday 25 November 2020

to be held via Video Conference 
10am - 11:15am

Please note – normally Mersey Care’s Public Meeting of the Board of Directors is a meeting held in public, rather than a public meeting in which the public may participate.  However in light of COVID-19 outbreak, the trust has taken a decision to hold this meeting virtually, which will permit the trust to implement social distancing by reducing face-to-face meetings across the trust in favour of meetings by phone / video conferencing.  In making this decision, the trust has taken account of the letter from NHS England / Improvement’s Chief Operating Officer of 28 March 2020 entitled Reducing burden and releasing capacity at NHS providers and commissioners to manage the COVID-19 pressures, which states:

“while under normal circumstances the public can attend at least part of provider board meetings, Government social isolation requirements constitute ‘special reasons’ to avoid face to face gatherings as permitted by legislation

As part of the Trust’s commitment to openness and accountability, members of the public are able to join the meeting via Zoom, but will need to apply in advance to do so as the address for the Zoom meeting will not be put on the public website. Should you wish to join this meeting please email Paula Murphy, Corporate Governance Manager via paula.murphy@merseycare.nhs.uk for details and observation guidelines. Unfortunately the Trust is not in a position to provide equipment, technical advice or support for members of the public wishing to observe this meeting using Zoom.

The papers for meetings will continue to be posted on the Trust’s website and minutes of the meetings – including any questions and answers to Board papers raised by members of the Board – will also be published on the website

Should you wish to ask a question about the issues addressed in any of the papers for this meeting, please address your question prior to the meeting by 12 noon on Tuesday 24 November 2020 to the Trust Secretary (andy.meadows@merseycare.nhs.uk).  Subject to time constraints, questions will either be responded to in the 15 minutes following the Board meeting on the Zoom call or the trust will endeavour to respond to you within 21 days.

We hope your recognise that we are doing this to help protect both our staff and members of the public by reducing the opportunities for transmission through social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak.  The Trust will review this decision on a regular basis taking account of national guidance.
