2 MINUTES OF THE PREVIOUS MEETINGS HELD ON 31 JULY 2017
With regards to Item 9 of the previous Minutes and that 80% of the changes would take place locally, the Committee asked if the additional resources from central government for this work would be distributed locally. The Committee was advised that work being done by the SYB team was being distributed equally amongst the areas involved.
The Minutes of the previous meeting were agreed.
3 Questions from members of the public
The following public questions had been submitted and the responses below were provided retrospectively for inclusion in the Minutes -
(1) Will in future all local authorities hosting this committee ensure that Public Questions are an agenda item?
Response - This was included in the Committee’s revised Terms of Reference which were to be considered later at this meeting.
(2) Will all local authorities try and ensure that the public know when the Scrutiny meetings are going to take place?
Response - Each local authority published the papers on their local website which the public could access and sign up for notifications. It was proposed that dates would be set for future meetings over the next year (on a 4-monthly basis); dates to be decided and published in due course.
(3) In relation to Minute 5 on the Minutes (Hospital Services Review) - Can you explain what scrutiny arrangements are linked to SYB STP?
Response - Under the terms of reference agreed by the Committee, there was provision for the Committee to consider ‘any other health related issues covering the same geographical footprint’ and under these principles the Committee would determine whether it was appropriate to meet as new NHS work streams emerged, therefore, the Committee would sit as and when appropriate in relation to SYB STP.
(4) In relation to Minute 9 on the Minutes (Discussion Regarding Scrutiny Arrangements) - What is included in the 20% that could ... view the full minutes text for item 1.
