Scrutiny is the mechanism by which the
Cabinet is held publicly to account. The scrutiny function has the capacity to give
non-Cabinet Members a significant opportunity to influence the
proposals of the Cabinet and to probe into the impact of policy
decisions on the Borough.
This is one of two scrutiny committees
established by the Council. This
committee covers adult social care, public health and the statutory
responsibility for scrutiny of local health services. It also scrutinises services for the children and
young people, partnership work undertaken by the Children’s
Trust and safeguarding arrangements.
Related Committees: the Resources
and Public Realm Scrutiny Committee,
Housing Scrutiny Committee (decommissioned May 2019).
