Health on the agenda

THE board of NHS Borders meets in public at its headquarters in Newstead later this month.

The meeting will be in the boardroom at 3pm next Thursday. The board convenes in public every two months to discuss current business as well as to receive updates on the business of its various committees.

A spokesperson sai :“We are committed to forging effective links with our partners such as patients, staff, local communities and disadvantaged groups so that their needs and views are placed at the heart of the design and delivery of local services.”

The present practice of moving the meetings around the Borders is about to end and all meetings will now be held at Newstead.
