Health and social care are urgent public policy priorities. Councils, through their social care, public health and scrutiny roles are central to tackling local challenges and ensuring that services are operating effectively, working with other health and care system leaders .

This publication sets out opportunities and steps to improving scrutiny’s role ensuring that good governance, engaged public voice and effective scrutiny are vital components of the health and care system. The experience and insights gained from this learning project can be used to influence future ‘inclusive’ discussions around the development of health and social care in England.
