Scrutiny Improvement Panel

The Scrutiny Improvement Panel is the main resident group within our resident governance structure and was established in May 2011 to scrutinise Gateway’s service areas and make recommendations for service improvement.

The Scrutiny Improvement Panel’s main remit is to:

  • take an independent view of Gateway's performance
  • establish priorities for reviewing performance
  • oversee resident-led scrutiny activities
  • collect evidence to enable services to be scrutinised

The Scrutiny Improvement Panel has the same level of influence as our formal committees and has a direct link to the Board, including having a Board member attend meetings as an observer and meets every two months.
Currently there are ten members on the Scrutiny Improvement Panel which meets every two months.

Influence rating: high                Time rating: 2-4 hours per month
