Important information regarding Public Board meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic
In light of the restrictions introduced by the Government to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Epsom and St Helier Board of Directors will continue to not meet in public.
The Trust is committed to maintaining transparency and accountability to the public during this period. As a result, we are planning to hold the Annual Public Meeting between 9.30am and 11am and the Trust Board meeting in Public between 11.15am and 12.15pm on Friday 11 September by Zoom webinar. To be able to join this meeting you will need to register by clicking the following link
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
Please register in good time as the meeting will be starting promptly at 9.30am.
We will be taking questions from the public via the Zoom chat facility during the Annual Public meeting, but as usual questions which you wish to submit to the Board during the Board of Directors Meeting in Public should to be submitted by 9am on Wednesday 9 September to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions cannot be put to the Board at the meeting.
The papers for APM and Board meetings will be available from 1pm on Monday 7 September via the link below:
We will be recording and uploading the meeting including all responses to questions to our website at https://www.epsom-sthelier.nhs.uk/board-meetings
Given the uncertainty as to how long the current restrictions will be required, the position set out above will remain in place until further notice. However, we look forward to welcoming back members of the public to our Board meetings as soon as the necessary steps to limit the transmission of COVID-19 are lifted.

The Board will meet in private session immediately following each public part of the meeting to discuss items which will include:
- Reports pertaining to litigation or potential litigation
- Items that are potentially commercially sensitive (as well as commercially confidential) for either the trust or a third party, eg contracts or tendering reports
- Matters concerning individual patients or members of staff, such as detailed Serious Incidents Reports
- Data that may be adjudged ‘protected’ under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA)
- Documents that may be exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI).
The board also has a number of committees, which focus on specific areas of work.
Upcoming Board meetings
Board meetings are held in public at either St Helier or Epsom Hospital. You are welcome to attend the meetings and listen to the discussions that take place.
Please be aware that all public board meetings will be filmed and that this footage, including the questions asked, will be made available on the Trust's website. Our filming will continue to be strategically arranged so the camera is fixed on members of the Trust Board and not on any members of the public.
