We carry out joint inspections with a number of partners. These inspections focus on, for example, services for children and young people, criminal justice social work services and health and social care services for adults and older people. We will inspect delivery across local areas, or we may look at how services are being delivered nationally. This means a number of scrutiny bodies will have a duty to scrutinise elements of the service. It makes sense to inspect these services in a joined-up way.
