Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee - SLaM Places of Safety

Purpose of committee

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 Council. The JHOSC will scrutinise the proposal from South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), and their commissioners, to change the current service model of Place of Safety provision within SLaM from four separate Places of Safety, for the boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham and Croydon, to one centralised Place of Safety, provided in Southwark for all four boroughs. The relevant commissioners for this proposal from SLaM are Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the Local Authorities social care commissioners from all four boroughs.
