This full name of this committee is Health and Social Care Overview and Scrutiny Committee or HOSC for short.
HOSC is a Bradford Council committee. It looks at how well health and care services are running in the Bradford district.
A committee is a small group of people from an organisation who talk about important issues.
The Bradford council area includes Bradford, Bingley, Ilkley, Keighley, Shipley and Silsden.
Most members of the HOSC are local councillors. There are three members of community groups who are also members. One of the community groups is the Co-Production Partnership.
Some of the things HOSC has talked recently include:
- Moving services out of Shipley Hospital
- Safeguarding adults
- Services for pregnant women and babies
- Keighley Health and Wellbeing Centre
There is a meeting most months. It is usually on a Thursday and starts at 4.30 and finishes at about 7 o’clock.
The meetings happen in Bradford City Hall. You can claim travel expenses to get there. You will need to have some time to read the papers which are sent before each meeting.
The Co-Production Partnership can help you do the role if you need help. The role on the committee is for two years.
