Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee (Camden Council)

The Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee scrutinises matters relating to health, public health and adult social care and hears the views of local residents, with a view to improving health/care services, reducing health inequalities and improving the health/care of local residents.

It also scrutinises the impact of the Council’s own services and of key partnerships (including the Health and Wellbeing Board) on the health of its population and responds to consultations by local health trusts and by the Department of Health. It considers whether changes proposed by local health trusts amount to a substantial variation or development and, if so, takes appropriate action including appointing members to any joint committee where the proposals cover more than one local authority’s area. It undertakes all statutory health scrutiny functions and receives and responds to referrals and reports from Healthwatch relating to health services in the area of Camden.  It receives and respond to referrals and reports from the Local Involvement Network relating to adult social care services in the area of Camden, in accordance with the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act, 2007 regulations and guidance.

 

N.B. All Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee meetings now take place at the Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, London NW1 1BD while the Town Hall is refurbished.
