How decisions are made

The Overview and Scrutiny Committees

Five Overview and Scrutiny Committees (OSCs) and one OSC sub-committee have been appointed to make recommendations to the Executive, scrutinise their decisions and assist in the development of policy in the following areas:

In the case of the Adult Care and Health OSC, the remit also covers the operation of health services and consultation on proposals for development by NHS bodies.

The Health and Wellbeing Board is a partnership body between the council and the health sector. The council may delegate to it decisions on joint initiatives and services. 

Under Wandsworth's executive arrangements, all matters concerning council services that are due to go to the Executive for decision will first be considered by the appropriate OSC.
