Welcome and Introductions

The Chair will welcome everyone to the meeting. 


The Chair welcomed everyone present to the meeting. 


Due to the low attendance, and following a short discussion and agreement with members of the Equality Forum present, the Chair deviated from the formal agenda, announcing that the presentations listed on the agenda would be heard at a future meeting.  The Chair then invited members of the Equality Forum to raise any questions:


·        Geoff Smith queried where the location of the new psychiatric hospital would be located as the original location had been rescinded.


The Council has since received a response from Clive Taylor from Lancashire Care Trust who advised that there was an understanding that a new psychiatric hospital would be built in Central Lancashire, the location for which was not yet known.
