Live question and answer panels

The purpose of this event type is to assist you in understanding the content of the proposals in more detail so you are able to complete the questionnaire. You will hear a video and a short presentation about the proposals and be able to ask questions of our senior health professionals. Over 1000 attendees will be able to attend, on a first come first served basis. 

This live event does not allow participants to communicate via audio or video. You will only be able to submit your questions via the the question and answer box within the Microsoft Teams platform. 

You can also listen in by telephone.

Each event will cover all aspects of the proposals. The Question and Answer session will be divided into sections covering Leicester Royal Infirmary, Glenfield Hospital, General Hospital, Maternity, Children’s services, followed by a general section.
