Social Services Appeals Panel minutes are approved following each meeting by the Members serving on that particular occasion and signed as a correct record by the Chairman for that meeting.
Reason: The Social Services Appeals Panel is constituted from a pooled membership with an Independent Person as Chairman. Consequently, a subsequent Panel meeting is likely to comprise a different Chairman and Members who took no part in the previous meeting’s proceedings. The process referred to provides appropriate approval scrutiny.
