Dear Angela Miller

Thanks for sending me the PH Director's report on oral health and the minutes of the meeting at which the report was received.

I am a little puzzled and hope that you can clarify for me exactly what "scrutiny" means. For example, is there a protocol which lists the terms of reference of Sunderland's Health Scrutiny Committee?

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Joy Warren
