The Cabinet Office issued pre-election guidance in the run-up to the General Election on 12 December 2019. During the pre-election period, specific restrictions are placed on the use of public resources and the communication activities of public bodies, civil servants and local government officials.
As a result, we have taken a different approach to public questions at this meeting:
The Partnership Board wants people to be involved in the decisions that it takes. We aim to make it as easy as possible for people to attend our meetings and to ask questions or make a statement. You can find information about the Board, including the dates of future meetings here.
If you can’t get along in person, you can send a question in advance or call us on 01924 317659. All of our meetings are live-streamed on our website.

Please note that Partnership Boards are business meetings which, for transparency, we hold in public. They are not ‘Public meetings’ for consulting with the public – we do this in a variety of different ways. You can find out more about how we engage with people here.
We believe Partnership Board meetings will be more successful if everyone is courteous and respects each other. To enable us to carry out our business effectively, we ask that you please follow these simple guidelines:
We will acknowledge and minute any questions that do not relate to the business of the meeting, but will not be respond verbally in the meeting, and may redirect the question for a response. We will publish any response on our website.
We respect your privacy and will only use your personal information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you contact us through this website with an enquiry you will be asked to provide some personal information about yourself: your full name, an email address and telephone number (optional).
We will contact you with a response using the email address you provide or your telephone number, if you provide one. We will respond to all enquiries where a valid email address is included.
Your personal information will be used to manage your enquiry via the relevant service area and to provide the information that you have requested. Sometimes this will mean we have to contact a partner organisation to help us in providing you with a response to your enquiry. We will not use or share your personal information for any other purpose other than for the purpose of providing you with a response.
If you do not wish to be contacted by us in response to your enquiry, please let us know by stating this when you submit your enquiry to us.
The information you provide to us will be held securely on our computers. We will keep a record of your personal information, your enquiry and our response to you, in line with the NHS record retention timescales within the Records Management Code of Practice for Health and Social Care 2016.
