Petitions: underperforming health services

We will work with local health partners to consider the matter raised in the petition including, where appropriate, exploring what role the Local Involvement Network (LINk) might have in reviewing and feeding back on the issue. The LINk is run by local individuals and community groups and independently supported; their role to find out what people want in terms of local health services, monitor those services and to use their powers to hold them to account.

The health overview and scrutiny committee will also be alerted to the petition and where the matter is sufficiently or potentially serious, the issue will be referred to them to consider for review.
