Scrutiny Board (Health)
The Health Scrutiny Board
carries out the Council’s statutory role to scrutinise local
National Health Service (NHS) bodies.
The Health and Social Care Act (2001)
requires the Council to scrutinise health services and to review
the planning, provision and operation of these services.
The Health Scrutiny Board does
not seek to manage the performance of the NHS in Leeds, or to
duplicate arrangements for advocacy on behalf of patients / service
users, but rather to consider health issues from the point of view
of the local community.
