“How do health outcomes for homeless households differ from the wider population and what can be done to close the gap?”

Joint Committee Work
Both the Birmingham and Sandwell Joint Health Scrutiny Committee and the Birmingham and Solihull Health Scrutiny Committee hold their meetings in public and you are most welcome to attend. The Joint Committees meet when there are proposed changes to services which may possibly have a substantial impact to residents in both Local Authority areas. Future meeting dates will be placed on the www.birmingham.gov.uk/scrutiny.
Depending on where the meeting is being held, the papers are available to download a week before from either the Democracy in Birmingham website,
the Sandwell Committee Management Information System at http://cmis.sandwell.gov.uk/cmis5/Home.aspx
or the Solihull Council website at www.solihull.gov.uk/About-the-Council/Councillors-committees/meetingsminutesagendas.
