Governing Body meetings

Our Governing Body meetings

Our Governing Body meetings will be held in the public. It is important to recognise that this is a meeting in public not a public meeting. This means that members of the public are able to attend and observe, but cannot take part in the discussions, except by putting a question in advance. We would ask members of the public who wish to attend to read the information below to ensure that Governing Body meetings are productive for all involved.

Governing Body role

The Governing Body makes sure that decisions, recommendations and plans are carried out appropriately and effectively and are efficiently managed. The Governing Body is supported by various committees and sub-committees who deal with the more detailed actions.

In line with its constitution the Governing Body will have a minimum of four meetings this year. These meetings allow NHS South Kent Coast’s Governing Body to consider the work that is the organisation is doing and decide whether it’s being done properly. At the beginning of each Governing Body meeting there may be a private session; this allows the Governing Body to discuss confidential issues. Following this private session, the Governing Body meeting will be open to the public.

The Governing Body is responsible for:

  • leading the setting of vision and strategy
  • approving commissioning plans
  • monitoring performance against plans
  • providing assurance of strategic risk
  • ensuring effective governance
