Scrutiny reviews work by gathering different types of information from a range of people and organisations. Councillors may go out into the community to meet with service users and providers to see for themselves how services are delivered. They may also invite written views from the local community or from elsewhere in the country. Questionnaires, consultation events, focus events or open days are also used to collect information about the subject matter.
