Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Public Health Wales Board will be held on Thursday 29 July 2021 at 10:00.

The Public Health Wales Board is committed to openness and transparency, and conducts as much of its business as possible in a session that members of the public are normally welcome to attend and observe. However, in light of the current advice and guidance in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we made the decision in March 2020 in the best interests of protecting the public, our staff and Board members agreed to no longer convene or gather in groups for meetings for the foreseeable future.
