The Health and Social Care Board is delighted to be hosting the fourth of the Health Minister's Public Facing Accountability meetings for Arm's Length Bodies.
This Ministerial led accountability meeting will be held in a public forum. The meetings will provide an opportunity for ALBs to be held to account by the Minister around issues of public interest and serve to raise public awareness of the important work of the ALB. They will be Chaired by the Patient and Client Council.
During the meeting, the HSCB will give a short presentation on their performance over the last year and their outlook for the future. The Minister will then proceed with a question and answer session on the performance of the HSCB. The audience will also be given the opportunity to submit additional questions to be answered by the HSCB at the end of the session.
The Minister said: "I am looking forward to these meetings and view this as a great opportunity for Arm's Length Bodies to promote themselves and highlight their positive progress as well as being held publicly to account for their performance.”
