The Trust, following national guidance on keeping people safe during COVID-19, stopped holding meetings in public during the pandemic. Please note that future Council of Governors meetings are likely to be held virtually in the future, with the agenda and papers available to view separately.

The papers and link to join the meeting will be published a week prior to each meeting.

Derbyshire Healthcare prides itself on being open and honest with patients, staff, Trust members and the general public. If you would like to raise a question that is applicable to the agenda of a Council of Governors meeting, please email in advance of the meeting. 

Future Council of Governors meeting dates are in the events section of this website. 

About our Council of Governors meetings

The Council of Governors meets four times a year in public which Trust members are welcome to observe. View our Council of Governors papers by year by clicking on the drop-down list below. Papers are posted on the website one week prior to the meeting taking place.
