Trust Board - dates, papers and background

Our Trust Board have overall corporate responsibility for the running of

our ambulance service. The main role of the Trust Board is to guide the overall strategic direction of EMAS including planning for our current challenges and future priorities – ensuring that we can set and meet our objectives.  

 

Our Trust Board is led by our Chairman and comprises of Executive Directors and Non-Executive Directors (see opposite).

 

Non-Executive Directors have roles and responsibilities outside EMAS.

This allows them to bring an alternative viewpoint and draw upon

external experience when discussing and agreeing upon the direction

of our Trust – bringing an important balance to the Board.

Public Board meetings

True involvement of local communities is the ethos that underpins everything we do at EMAS and we welcome and value your input in helping us to achieve this aim.  Meetings of our Trust Board are held in public with a commitment to ensuring that Board decision making is transparent and open. We also tweet live from the meeting via #EMASLive on Twitter @EMASNHSTrust. There will, however, be occasions when, due to the nature of the issue to be discussed, the Board is required to meet in confidential session.

 

You are invited to attend any of our Public Board Meetings - it is not essential to inform us that you will be attending, although this would be helpful for planning purposes.  If you wish to inform us that you will be attending, please contact the Governance Team  on 0115 8845103 or email governance@emas.nhs.uk

 

Copies of the meeting papers can be made available for collection on arrival if requested before 4.30pm on the Thursday prior to each meeting. Meeting papers will not be available at the meeting unless requested in advance
