Chiswick Day Centre To Go Before Scrutiny Panel
After Council receives formal complaints about planned closure
Following a formal complaint received by Hounslow Council's Health & Adult Care Scrutiny Panel from a service user and concerns and questions raised by Councillors on behalf of service users, the Chair of the Panel, Cllr Rajawat, has requested a special meeting to consider the closure of Chiswick and Bedfont Day Centres.
An invitation has been sent to all members of the Panel, made up of both Labour and Conservative Councillors, to attend the meeting.
Members of the community along with key stakeholders such as Carers UK and Age Concern are also being invited to attend although a date and time has yet to be announced.
As part of the discussions, there are a number of issues that Members are interested in exploring. These include:
Members will be given an opportunity to see service and risk impact assessments and any strategy documents relating to managing day centre services in the borough, prior to the meeting.
The final decision on the Day Centres will be made on 1st March at the Borough Council Meeting.
The agenda has now been published on-line and can be found at
