Council Meetings

Four meetings a year are held at the Trust Head Office in Essex. Members of the public, service users and patients are welcome to observe part one of Council meetings.

These meetings provide Governors with the opportunity to represent their local communities, and working together to advise and influence how we develop and deliver safe quality services. This means discussing topics such as major new service developments, the annual report and accounts, and how members are being recruited and kept informed.

Comments and questions from the floor are discussed at the end of the meeting.
