Hertfordshire County Council

Our scrutiny committees review decisions that the council makes and hold the Executive (Cabinet) to account. Our scrutiny committees are made up of councillors who do not serve on the Cabinet.

The purpose of scrutiny is to review and make recommendations that will improve the services we offer and have a positive impact on the lives of Hertfordshire citizens. 

Our scrutiny function also has the power to scrutinise health services in Hertfordshire.
