Report on the activities of the Steering Group
since the Health Scrutiny Committee last met on 30 June
The committee considered a report providing an overview of matters considered by the Health Scrutiny Steering Group at its meetings on 22 June and 15 July 2020.
Councillor Margaret France expressed that as a member of the Council of Governors for the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and a member of the Our Health Our Care Stakeholder Reference Panel, there may be a conflict of interest if she were to be confirmed as a member of the proposed task and finish group to consider forthcoming proposals from the local NHS on the future of Chorley and South Ribble A&E. It was explained that Chorley Council's nominated substitute member for Councillor France could take up the seat instead or alternatively for the county council to write to Chorley Council to nominate a replacement member. Resolved That:
1) The report of the Steering Group, as presented, be received.
2) The establishment of a task and finish group consisting of seven county councillors and the two co-opted members from Chorley Council and South Ribble Council to review the forthcoming proposals from the Our Health Our Care programme on the future of Chorley and South Ribble A&E, be agreed.
