Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007

Section 227: Local involvement networks: annual reports

535.This section sets out the required provision about annual reports referred to in section 222(7).

536.Section 222(7) requires that arrangements under section 221(1) entered into by a local authority with a host must include the required provision about annual reports. The arrangements will require that an annual report must be prepared, by each local involvement network put in place by the host, on the activities of the local involvement network in each financial year. Where a local involvement network does not produce an annual report, the arrangements must provide for the host to produce it. The arrangements must also require that the report complies with certain requirements set out in subsection (3), that the report must be prepared by 30 June following the end of each financial year and that copies of it should be made publicly available (having had regard to guidance issued by the Secretary of State that may be in force at the time) and sent to the bodies specified in subsection (4).

537.The requirements set out under subsection (3) are that the report must address such matters as the Secretary of State may direct and must include details of amounts spent in relation to the local involvement network’s activities. Where in any financial year there are activities for which a host is required to, but has not, put in place a local involvement network, the host will be required to prepare a report in relation to those activities, including details of amounts spent on those activities (which are likely to include amounts spent in attempting to put in place a local involvement network to carry on those activities).
