Extraordinary Meetings: 

  • Tuesday 16th May 2017 - The Trust Board will formally receive and respond to the recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection report.   This meeting will be held at 9:30a.m. in the School of Health Sciences (South Hospital), St. Mary's Hospital.  Click here for a copy of the CQC report and visit the CQC website for further details.

  • Tuesday 30th May 2017 - formal signing off of the Annual Report, Annual Accounts and Quality Account (Accounts to be submitted on 1st June 2017). 

    The Trust Board meeting due to be held in public on Tuesday 30th May at 11:30 will now be held in private.     This meeting was set up before the General Election was called for June 8th.   We have reflected on the requirements of ‘purdah’ and taken further advice, and we believe that holding the meeting in public would not serve the public interest.    The issues to be discussed are the approval of the annual report, the annual governance statement and annual accounts.  These will be available prior to the Trust’s Annual General Meeting  on 18th July.  


    The next meetings of the Trust Board in public will be on Wednesday 7th June and Wednesday 5th July at 9:00a.m. in the School of Health Sciences building on the St. Mary’s Hospital site.




Members of the public and press are invited to attend.  The agenda and papers for the meetings can be viewed here from the Friday prior to the meeting.  Questions for the Board should be received by the Board Governance Office no later than 48 hours prior to the meeting by post or email to: Board Governance Office, 1st Floor South Block, St Mary's Hospital, Newport, Isle of Wight , PO30 5TG.  Email:

 All dates are correct at the time of going to press but may be subject to alteration.  Any changes will be notified on this webpage.
