Upcoming Board meetings

The next formal meeting of the NHS National Services Scotland Board is scheduled to take place on Friday 09 December 2022 at 09:30am.

Our Board meetings are organised in a way that allows interested people to observe the proceedings and Board discussion. However, it is important to stress that these are meetings that take place in public but they are NOT public meetings, which means that those who join the meeting as observers cannot take part.

The Board convenes using a hybrid meeting model, meeting both in person and virtually via Microsoft Teams.

If you are interested in joining our next Board meeting as a public observer, please email who will provide you with the MS Teams meeting link, agenda, and guidelines for observing via email a few days before the meeting. To allow the Board Services team to accomodate your request to attend, please contact us at least 48 hours before the meeting is due to start.

We will also ensure that all papers are available on this site as soon after the meeting as possible.
