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 Joint City and County Health Scrutiny Committee is made up of 8 non-executive City Councillors and 8 County Councillors to scrutinise health matters which impact on both the areas covered by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council, including carrying out the statutory health scrutiny role.
The Committee meets monthly and meetings are open to the public. Administration of the Committee and location of meetings alternates each year between Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
The Committee is currently administered by Nottinghamshire County Council and details of meetings and papers can be found on the County Council website here.
