Review of hospital reconfiguration

What is the Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee?

Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council have responsibilities for scrutinizing health services within their areas. A joint committee, consisting of Elected Members and Co-optees from each authority's Health Scrutiny Committee, has been established to scrutinise health issues that impact on the wider health economy in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.

The Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JHOSC) have a role in looking at statutory consultation carried out by the NHS where substantial changes to services are planned and understanding whether proposals would be in the best interest of the health services in its area.

The JHOSC wants to hear about your experience of the Future Fit consultation process

The JHOSC are involved in looking at the consultation process in relation to the Future Fit proposals. They are not duplicating the consultation process, but want to develop an understanding of how the consultation process has worked and whether it has been accessible and engaged with all sections of the Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin communities.

In order to do this, the Joint Committee is asking individuals and organisations to provide feedback on their experience of the Future Fit consultation. This information will be used by the JHOSC to inform their thinking and the questions and discussions that will take place with Shropshire CCG, Telford and Wrekin CCG and Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust.

The JHOSC would be very grateful to receive your responses to the questions on the survey which can be completed online.
