Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (Yorkshire and the Humber)

1. The Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (Yorkshire and the Humber) – the JHOSC – was initially established (in March 2011) to consider the Safe and Sustainable Review of Children’s Congenital Cardiac Services in England, the associated proposals and respond to the options presented for public consultation. 


 2. The JHOSC submitted a formal response to the options presented for public consultation in October 2011 and a decision on the proposed future model of care and designation of surgical centres in July 2012, the JHOSC referred the decision to the Secretary of State for Health in November 2012. This was subsequently passed to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel (IRP) for consideration and advice.

3. The IRP’s findings and recommendations were set out in its report to the Secretary of State for Health at the end of April 2013. A copy of the IRP’s advice and recommendations can be found on the IRPs website.​


4. On 12 June 2013, an announcement from the Secretary of State for Health accepted the IRP’s report and recommendations in full and called a halt to the Safe and Sustainable Review of Children’s Congenital Cardiac Services in England and asked NHS England – as the new body responsible for commissioning specialised services following the restructuring arrangements across the NHS that came into force from 1 April 2013 – to report how it proposed to proceed by the end of July 2013.

5. NHS England’s response to the Secretary of State for Health, which included a report presented to the NHS England Board on 18 July 2013.  You can follow the progress of the new congenital heart disease review on NHS England’s following dedicated webpage:


6. In September 2013, the JHOSC considered the IRPs recommendations, along with NHS England’s proposals for a new congenital heart disease review covering the lifetime pathway of services (i.e. covering services to children and adults).

7. In December 2013, the JHOSC agreed revised terms of reference in relation to NHS England’s new congenital heart disease review.
