Information about Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee - SLaM Mental Health of Older Adults

The Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JHOSC) is constituted in accordance with the Local Authority (Public Health, Health and 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 council.

 

The JHOSC will scrutinise the proposal from South London and Maudsley NHS Trust to change to the service model for acute inpatient care for older adults in Lambeth, Southwark, Croydon and Lewisham by designating separate inpatient wards for patients with functional (psychotic, mood and anxiety disorders) and organic (dementia) mental health needs.

 

The relevant commissioners for the proposal are Lambeth, Southwark, Croydon and Lewisham CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups) and the social care commissioners from all four boroughs.
