The Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny
Committee (JHOSC) 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 a substantial
reconfiguration proposal covering more than one local authority
The JHOSC will scrutinise the proposal from
Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group and their provider South
London and Maudsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), to
reconfigure mental health inpatient services for Lambeth, by
transferring in-patient services (one psychiatric intensive care
unit (PICU) and four acute wards) currently located in Lambeth
Hospital to a new facility on the Maudsley Hospital site.
The JHOSC will consider the impact of proposed
future service provision on the boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth
and seek assurance that the proposed changes will be in the best
interests of the local health service.
The relevant commissioners for this proposal
are Lambeth and Southwark Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and
the social care commissioners from both local authorities.
