The Integrated Care and Wellbeing Scrutiny
Panel has responsibility for considering a large remit within
Tameside, including the local National Health Service Trusts,
Public Health, the Health and Wellbeing Board and the upcoming Care
Together scheme. It also has
responsibility for Adult and Children’s Services, Education
and Schools. This Panel is the only democratically elected body
with a statutory function to carry out scrutiny of the Health
Services in Tameside.
Scrutiny of local NHS Trusts was introduced
from May 2001 as part of the Government's Patient and Public
Participation Agenda. In Tameside,
Health Scrutiny is aimed at improving people's health by looking at
the quality, performance, accessibility and outcome of NHS services
in the Borough. This is achieved by meeting staff from the major
healthcare services, and undertaking cross-cutting, thematic
scrutiny exercises and service reviews, looking at the outcome of
health and social care provision to all the people of Tameside.
The Panel will strive to improve the
situations and the health and wellbeing of residents across the
Tameside by undertaking in-depth reviews of the priority issues in
the borough, and by regularly monitoring the work undertaken by the
key service Health and People services.
