Citizens’ Jury

Forest of Dean Citizens’ Jury Schedule

The table below provides an overview of the planned schedule for the citizens’ jury to recommend a location for a new hospital within the Forest of Dean. Members of the public are very welcome to watch the event – participants will be using microphones during the plenary sessions so that observers can hear. Group work will not be audible but may be observed. Observers must remain quiet throughout so as not to disturb jury members and presenters.

The citizens’ jury will run from approximately 13.00 to 17.00 on 30 July, and from 09.30 to 17.00 on the following four days. There will be mid-morning and mid-afternoon tea/coffee breaks, and a 45-minute lunch break starting around 12.15-12.45.

The presenters’ slides for each day will be published and available for download by 1pm each day on the Forest of Dean health website. Paper reference copies will also be available to view at the venue (Forest Hills Golf Club).
