HCS Board zoom meetings during pandemic (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 14 October 2021.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
The Health and Community Services (HCS) Board used to meet publicly every month and I understand that during the Covid crisis this would no longer have been possible. They surely would have met via Zoom or some other platform though, although it appears that these meetings have not been advertised publicly which they should have been.
