Right Arrow Trust Board goes on the road
20 January 2014 at 12:02

A hospital trust Board is going on the road to bring greater transparency to its decision-making processes.

The directors of Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust will meet at the Salvation Army’s new building at 65, Shakespeare Street, Southport, PR8 5AJ at 9am on Wednesday 29th January.

Graham Slee, acting-chairman of the Board, said: “We know more and more people want to attend our board meetings. So, we intend to hold some future meetings at community venues where we can accommodate more members of the public and bring the business of the Trust closer to local people.”

The agenda will be available on the Trust website in advance of the meeting. Supporting papers will be available on the day.
Members of the public are welcome to attend. Anyone with a special requirement should contact the Trust in advance on 01704 704714.
