One Barnet Partnership Board minutes

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that the minutes from the One Barnet Partnership Board would be made public.

The One Barnet Partnership Board brings together representatives from key public sector bodies in Barnet – the council, NHS Barnet, Middlesex University, Job Centre plus and the Metropolitan Police – to discuss important issues that affect the lives of our residents.

The minutes from the last meeting are now available on Barnet’s website.


One Barnet Partnership Board minutes to be made public

The One Barnet Partnership Board is a group that’s made up of senior representatives from Barnet’s key public sector organisations, such as the council, the police, the NHS and education bodies. The board meets every two to three months to jointly agree a shared strategy for the borough, oversee a programme of work to turn this strategy into action, and ensure we provide better, more accessible services to Barnet residents.

Following feedback I’ve received from the One Barnet Overview and Scrutiny Panel it has been decided that minutes from the One Barnet Partnership Board will be published online. This decision was wholeheartedly supported by the board.

This means that meetings of the One Barnet Partnership Board will be subject to the same level of public scrutiny as other council meetings. This is as it should be. It is important that what we do is open and transparent because, ultimately, we are working for Barnet citizens.

I will add a link to the next set of One Barnet Partnership Board meeting minutes when they are published.
