Board Meetings

Our Board meets publicly six times a year and we welcome members of the public to join us.
Questions can be submitted in advance by emailing rcht.corporategovernance@nhs.net up until 5pm on the working day prior to the Board meeting.

Members of the Public will also be asked whether they wish to raise a question prior to the start of the meeting, and these will be recorded and provided to the Chairman of the Trust Board. The Chairman of the Trust Board may permit an oral question to be asked at the end of the meeting of the Trust Board without notice having been given.
