We must send notices of preliminary meetings to the nurse or midwife no less than fourteen days’ before the meeting is to take place.1 We inform the nurse or midwife of the date, time and venue of the preliminary meeting, and that they may attend in person, over the telephone, or provide written responses.

To help the nurse or midwife to prepare for the meeting, this notice will also include our reasons for holding the preliminary meeting, and a copy of any documents that we intend to show the Chair.
