You don't necessarily need to be in the room to attend the final DHB board meetings

The end is nigh for those wanting to attend a public board meeting of their local, or not so local, DHB.

Scanning through the websites of the country’s DHBs, we found the following with board meetings planned in the next few weeks. Sadly, we missed two this week. We've added the website addresses so you can take a look at the agendas and past meeting minutes, and anything else that might take your fancy as we're not quite sure yet what will happen with all the historic information come 1 July, the date the DHBs are ultimately consigned to history.

Many of the meetings are on Zoom so don't feel constrained by distance – remember this is a final once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – if you didn’t make it to The Mall to see the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace then maybe consider this second best.

Here are the dates we have scraped from the DHB websites.
