Prem Singh, chairman of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The first part of the meeting is about providing an opportunity for members of the public to engage with us about what they think of local community health services. We are really hoping people will come along to join in the conversation.
“From 1.30pm the second part of the meeting is our formal trust board business. This is open to observers and then at the end of the meeting anyone can ask questions about anything which has been discussed.
