Welsh Ambulance Service invites members of public to Trust Board meeting

THE Welsh Ambulance Service is inviting members of the public to come and find out more about how it works.

People are being encouraged to attend the Trust’s latest quarterly board meeting in Cardiff in order to see how it makes decisions and to pose questions about how the service is run.

The meeting will take place on Thursday 23 March at Butetown Community Centre in Cardiff, with formal proceedings starting at 10am.

In the afternoon session from 1.45pm, there will be a specific focus on listening to staff about their experiences on the frontline and to those of patients and partners.

There is a jam-packed agenda on the day and those who wish to attend are also welcome to speak with board members.

Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust Chair, Mick Giannasi, said: “Opening our meetings out to local communities is an important part of our engagement with the people of Wales.

“We want you to come along and watch our decision making in action as we aim to continuously drive forward the quality of clinical care that we provide.

“We also want to hear your views and any questions you might have so that we can listen and shape the future of our services together.”

In order to make your attendance as comfortable as possible, the Trust is asking that anyone planning to go along confirms their attendance in advance with Steven Owen in the Corporate Services Team on 01745 532994 or e-mail Steven.Owen2@wales.nhs.uk

Board papers will be available on the Trust’s website at www.ambulance.wales.nhs.uk in advance of the meeting and Welsh simultaneous translation facilities will be available on the day.
