Members from the trusts, along with councillors, will then consider and comment on performances in 2018/19 and look to what future priorities could be.

A report from Joan Stevens, council statutory scrutiny manager, said all providers of NHS healthcare services are required to produce annual reports to be scrutinised by the local authority.

It said: “Representatives from each of the trusts identified will be present…to give the committee an opportunity to consider and comment on their performance in 2018/19 and the priorities identified for quality improvement in 2019/20.”

The meeting will take place at the Civic Centre in Hartlepool from 10am on Thursday.
