Committee details

Joint Health Committee with Cumbria

Members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings to watch them in person at any of the venues across the County. Publicly accessible meetings held in County Hall will be webcast, which means they are available to be watched live or recorded on our website. Please see our webcasting notice here. The Committee may, in certain circumstances, resolve to hold part of the meeting in private. If this is the case, you will be required to leave the meeting.

Purpose of committee

The Cumbria and Lancashire Joint Health Scrutiny Committee meets on an ad hoc basis. Agendas and minutes of meetings are hosted on Cumbria County Council's website.


The purpose of the Joint Committee is to discharge the health scrutiny functions of Cumbria and Lancashire County Councils in relation to any proposals made by the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) regarding any cross boundary substantial variations in service provision as they arise.
