Board meetings

The Board of NHS England is committed to openness and transparency, and conducts as much of its business as possible in a session that members of the public are welcome to attend and observe, subject to available space.

The Board meeting, although held in public, is not a public meeting and as such there is no opportunity provided for the public to ask questions in that arena.

Whilst there is no opportunity for questions to be raised in the meeting itself, members of the public are welcome to submit any questions they may have to england.boardattendance@nhs.net, and a written response will be provided.

The Board also holds meetings in closed session where confidential items of business are discussed.

Attending a board meeting

The next Board meeting will take place on 15 December 2016 from approximately 10:45 at Skipton House, 80 London Road, London, SE1 6LH

If you wish to attend, please contact england.boardattendance@nhs.net at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting, and remember to let us know if you have any specific requirements.

Please be aware that you will need to sign-in at reception upon arrival and will not be allowed access to the building until 5 minutes before the meeting starts. A member of staff will escort everyone to the meeting room.  Unfortunately, if members of the public arrive after the meeting has already started it may not be possible for them to join the meeting.

At the end of meeting, all members of the public will also be escorted back to the main entrance by a member of staff.

The Board meeting will be broadcast live as part of our commitment to make information as accessible as possible. The livestream is best viewed in Firefox, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer 8 and 9 with the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. The live broadcast will be added to our livestream page on the date of the board meeting.

A separate recording of each agenda item will then be published on YouTube in the following few days and captions will be available at this stage.
