New consultation on Integrated Disability Service is a success for Scrutiny

by John Whitehouse on 12 October, 2013

Warwickshire County Council launched a new 4-week consultation on the future of its Integrated Disability Service:

This is a direct result of concerted action by opposition WCC councillors, who were not satisfied with the decision taken by Conservative Cabinet members on 12 Sep, and who therefore “called in” the decision to a special meeting of the Children & Young People Overview & Scrutiny Committee on 26 Sep. At that meeting, the Cabinet member agreed to run a new consultation on the revised “Matrix of Need”, the key tool to be used by officers in assessing¬†¬†individual need and eligibility to services and support.

A great example of effective Scrutiny at work.
