Welcome to this meeting

It may make reports or recommendations to the Council, Health and Wellbeing Board or the appropriate Strategic Committee, health bodies, other relevant agencies and providers of services on any matter it has reviewed or scrutinised.  The Panel may review:

·         arrangements made by NHS bodies to secure hospital and community health services to the local residents

·         the provision of such services to local residents

·         the provision of family health services, personal medical services

personal dental services, pharmacy and NHS ophthalmic services

·         the public health arrangements in the area

·         the planning of health services by NHS bodies, including plans made in co-operation with local authorities, setting out a strategy for improving both the health of the local population, and the provision of health care to that population

·         the plans, strategies and decisions of the local Health and Wellbeing Board

·         the arrangements made by NHS bodies for consulting and involving

patients and the public under the duty placed on them by Sections 242

and 244 of the NHS Act 2006

·         any matter referred to the Panel by Healthwatch under the Health

and Social Care Act 2012

·         social care services and other related services delivered by this authority.


The Panel may respond as a consultee to NHS bodies in respect of proposals for  substantial development of the health service in the authority’s area; and any proposals to make any substantial variations to the provision of such services.
