Successful Scrutiny 2012

Posted on 01/01/2012 by Ed Hammond. Tags: ,

Some of the very best examples of high quality scrutiny having an impact in 2012, as reflected in the winners and shortlisted entries in our Good Scrutiny Awards.

The Good Scrutiny Awards have two purposes. The primary purpose is to recognise the excellent work of non-executives around the country and to celebrate with the winners (and other shortlisted entries) their impact. The secondary purpose is to share new, different and effective practice and to inspire others from across the public sector to enter next time round.

Now more than ever our principles of transparency, involvement and accountability are crucial to the way people who plan and deliver services approach the challenges we face as a society. Our principles of good scrutiny remain firm foundations around which people who use services and the public can come together with professionals and political leaders to solve problems.
