Information about Sheffield Health and Wellbeing Board

 

Sheffield’s Health and Wellbeing Board is a group of local GPs, local councillors, a representative of Sheffield citizens, and senior managers in the NHS and the local authority, all of whom seek to make local government and local health services better for local people and to deliver a single approach to improving the health and wellbeing of Sheffield residents.

 

The Board has a formal public meeting, normally four times per year, interspersed with engagement events and strategy development meetings.

 

Attending Meetings/Public Questions

 

There is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions of the Board under the agenda item ‘Public Questions’.

 

The arrangements for dealing with questions and petitions at meetings of the Board which are held remotely are as follows:-

 

  • If you wish to ask a question or submit a petition, you must submit the question/petition in writing at least 2 clear days in advance of the date of the meeting, by email to the following address: committee@sheffield.gov.uk.  For meetings held on a Thursday, questions/petitions will need to be received by 9.00 a.m. on the Tuesday of that week.

 

  • The Chair of the meeting has discretion as to how questions and petitions are presented at the meeting and as to whether you are invited to ask your question, or whether they are read out at the meeting. We are working to make the necessary arrangements to enable members of the public to ask questions in person but it is possible that these may not be in place in time for the June Board meeting.  To make it possible for your question to be asked in person, you are asked to provide a contact email and/or telephone number to enable a meeting invitation to be issued to you to join the meeting remotely.  If we are unable to put the necessary arrangements in place, all questions submitted will be read out in the meeting.

 

  • A response to the question or petition will be given by the appropriate Board Member.  If you are not able to attend the meeting, your question/petition will be read out at the meeting, and an answer/response will be given by the appropriate Board Member. 

 

  • Where a submitted question or petition cannot be answered because of a technological failure, if time does not allow, or where a Board Member undertakes to provide a written answer/response, the written answer/response will be provided to you within 14 days.

 

Recording is allowed at meetings of the Board under the direction of the Chair of the meeting. The protocol on audio/visual recording and photography provides further information.
