NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Board will be holding its meetings in public so you can watch the decision-making process.
This means that members of the public can watch the meeting, but it is not an open forum for contributions from the floor, nor a meeting where citizens can bring agenda items.
Our next board meeting
The next meeting is on Wednesday 28 September 2022, 2pm - 5pm.
The on-going situation of the Covid-19 pandemic will be kept under review and should further restrictions be introduced then the meeting will not be held in public, but members of the public will be able to watch the meeting virtually.
The Board will accept questions from members of the public related to the agenda items for the meeting. These should be submitted via email by 12.00noon on Monday 25 July 2022 to email@example.com.

Can I submit a question?
Yes we will take questions from members of the public, as long as they relate to what is on the agenda and they are submitted in advance.
You can submit a question by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do this at least 48 hours before the board meeting.
Here’s some guidelines to submitting a question:
- We will accept your question as long as it relates to the commissioning of health services in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and they are relevant to the meeting’s agenda.
- Let us know if you have any interest in the question’s subject.
- If your question is complex, needs particular research, or data retrieval or analysis, we may defer your question. Depending on the detail of information required, we may ask you to submit it as Freedom of Information (FOI) request.
- The Chair of the Board’s decision to accept a question, and how it should be answered, is final. Grounds for not accepting public questions include, but are not limited to:
- It would be too expensive or would take too much staff resource to deal with the question.
- The question would cause distress or is offensive.
- The question has previously been answered in the last six months and placed in the public domain.
- The answer could prejudice a criminal investigation or commercial confidentiality.
- The answer relates to personal data, which if released would be contrary to the Data Protection Act.
The questions and answers will be sent to the individual asking the question and published three weeks after the meeting. The questions and answers will also be included in the papers for the next scheduled meeting.
