Our Healthier South East London Joint Health Overview & Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

The Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee is constituted in accordance with the Local Authority Public Health, Health & Wellbeing Boards and Health Scrutiny Regulations 2013 (the “Regulations”) and Department of Health Guidance to respond to substantial reconfiguration proposals covering more than one Council area from the Our Healthier South East London programme (“OHSEL”). OHSEL is a proposal devised by the 6 CCGs covering the London Boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.  It proposes a five year commissioning strategy for the areas covered by the 6 London Boroughs represented on this joint overview and scrutiny committee.  The CCGs state that the programme is developed to improve health, reduce health inequalities and ensure all health services in South East London meet safety and quality standards consistently and are sustainable in the longer term.
