Welcome to this meeting


The following information explains the way some things are done at the meeting.


Information about the Health Overview Panel


The Panel is made up of your local elected Councillors plus Advisory Members who have been co-opted  to represent specific interests. Its role is outlined below:


The Panel may review and scrutinise any matter relating to the planning, provision and operation of the health service commissioned or delivered in this authority’s area. 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.


Public participation during the meeting


There is a Question Time of up to 20 minutes from 7.30pm – 7.50pm.  Questions may be submitted in writing before the meeting or handed in at the start of the meeting on the green forms provided. (There are some green slips on the chairs and there are more copies.)  Please fill in the relevant part and hand this in to the Committee Secretary at the top table. 


Questions sent in before the meeting will be answered at the meeting.   Depending on officers and health representatives present it may not be possible to answer questions handed in at the meeting and these will be replied to in writing to the questioner where address or email details are provided and members of the committee.  The Chair may disallow any question which, in his/her opinion, is scurrilous, capricious, irrelevant or otherwise objectionable.


Running order


Are you here for a particular item? Items may be taken in a different order depending on the interests of the members of the public present at the meeting.  Please fill out a pink form at the start of the meeting and hand this to the Committee Secretary if you would like to request that a particular item is heard earlier in the meeting.


Taking part in the meeting


During the course of the meeting, the Chair, at his/her discretion, may allow contributions, on items listed on the agenda.  To attract the Chair’s attention, please raise your hand.

 Speaking at a meeting can be a daunting prospect and every effort is made to make this as easy as possible.   Speech friendly arrangements will take account of people who may have a speech impairment, e.g. they may have a stammer.  If you have any individual requirements or feel that standing or addressing the meeting may present a difficulty, please let us know beforehand.  Arrangements will be made to help you as far as reasonably possible.
