The Scrutiny Panels
Adults, Health and Social Care Scrutiny Panel
The Adults, Health and Social Care Scrutiny Panel looks at issues concerning older people and adults with disabilities, mental health, homecare and drugs and alcohol services. This may involve looking at the work of the council in these areas, and also the work of partner agencies and organisations. The panel may offer advice or make recommendations on policy development to the cabinet or council, or look at decisions of the cabinet and, if appropriate, ask them to reconsider. They may also make recommendations to partner agencies in certain circumstances.
So far this year the Panel has looked at issues, including the Gender Identity Services, Better Care Fund and Strategic Review.
For our completed review, see scrutiny reviews.
