I was surprised, but pleased, to read your article about the next meeting of the Mid-Sussex Primary Care Trust, which contained details of the agenda (The Argus, September 1). The trust was even hoping for a "good turnout".

I noticed it meets at the "customer-friendly" time of 5pm, unlike the Brighton Trust, which meets at the "member-friendly" time of 1pm and its bare notice never contains details of the agenda.

How can it ever foster attendance when it meets almost in private?
