Overview and scrutiny helps to provide accountability and transparency in local public services. It is an opportunity for non-executive councillors to review policies, decisions and services of the City Council and other organisations operating in Nottingham to ensure they meet the needs of the community and, where necessary, makes recommendations for improvement.
The Health Scrutiny Committee reviews and scrutinises the commissioning and delivery of local health and social care services in Nottingham to ensure reduced health inequalities, access to services and the best outcomes for local people. When a substantial change to a local health service is proposed, the Committee will be consulted and has a statutory role to ensure that the public interest has been taken into account and proposed change is in the best interest of local health services.
The Committee is made up of 9 non-executive councillors appointed to reflect the political balance of the Council. It usually meets every other month.
Meetings are open to the public.
