Trust Board and Council of Governor Meetings

For upcoming meeting dates, visit our Events page.

Trust Board meetings are held in public ten times a year. The meetings commence at 10am and the venues for these meetings rotate around Lancaster Kendal and Barrow. Any variation to this time will be shown on the agendas for the meetings. 

Staff, patients, the media and members of the public are welcome to attend these meetings but must be aware that although the meeting is held in public, it is not a public meeting. Members of the public and media do not have speaking rights. Public members and the media do not sit at the Board room table. Allocated seating is provided. For more specific information regarding the Code of Conduct for public members at Board meetings, please contact the Company Secretary on 01539 716684.

In relation to posting agendas, all matters to be acted on by the Board will be posted on the this page at least three working days prior to the Board meeting and will be made available online 24 hours a day. In urgent cases when a subject matter needs immediate action or comes to the attention of the Board subsequent to the posting of the agenda, the Board may act on an item that was not on the posted agenda under ‘Any other Business’. Any supplementary agenda items will also be posted on the Trust’s website.

There are occasions when the Board will need to consider agenda items which are confidential and cannot be discussed in public and this will be explained on the agenda and by the Chair of the meeting.

Should you require any further information regarding the Trust Board meetings, please contact the Company Secretary on 01539 716684.

The Council of Governors meetings are open to FT members and the public to observe. If you have any queries, please contact Olivia Caton at

Meetings of the Council are open to the public and members and you are welcome to attend.

Whilst it is not possible for you to participate in debates, in the interest of openness and transparency, members and the public have the opportunity to ask any questions at the start of the formal agenda provided that the Chair has been notified in advance.  We ask that you give details of any questions 2 working days in advance in order to allow time for a thorough response to be provided.

If you have any questions or urgent business to raise then please contact Paul Jones, Company Secretary at least 2 working days prior to the meeting of the Council in order to avoid disappointment.

Next meeting date: 10 August, 2pm, via MS Teams
