How the Board is held to account

The Board is held to account by the Council's scrutiny councillors.

Formally the responsibility for scrutinising the work of the Board is with Swansea Council's Scrutiny Programme Committee.  They have set up a special panel to undertake this role.  The Public Services Board Scrutiny Panel includes councillors as well as people responsible for holding other public bodies to account. 

This scrutiny panel will decide what aspects of the Board's work they want to investigate and gather evidence, including from the public, about the work that is being done.  The panel's conclusions and recommendations are published in letters to the chair of the Board who must then reply, also by public letter.

You can find out about the work of the scrutiny panel and the rest of the scrutiny function on the Council website.
