The policy committee and each of the policy area committees undertake scrutiny roles to develop policies and ensure that new and existing policies are implemented, operated and reviewed appropriately.
The County Council has two scrutiny committees which focus on health issues. These are:
- Joint City/County Health Scrutiny Committee
- Health Scrutiny Committee (which covers the North of the County, including Newark).

The committee scrutinises developments in local NHS services and helps to ensure the delivery of local health services. This includes:
