Maggie Oldham, Interim Chief Executive Officer at Isle of Wight NHS Trust, said:

“We warmly welcome Trust members, the public, staff and anyone with an interest in the Island’s health service to attend our Trust Board meetings. Whilst the Board meeting is not a ‘public meeting’ in the conventional sense we do welcome questions.   It’s helpful if these can be submitted in advance so we can give a more detailed answer and manage the limited time we have at these meetings.”

You can send questions before the meeting to [email protected].
