On behalf of the Scottish Directors of Public Health, ScotPHN will develop a process for decision making re allocating funding.

This work will focus on prioritisation tools which enable identification of both the magnitude of a health problem and methods of intervention which are both feasible and effective. These tools will ideally have a focus on prevention of illness and promotion of health.

The work will aim to identify prioritisation tools that include a means of quantifying or assessing:

  • the size of the health problem;
  • the seriousness of the health problem;
  • the effectiveness of new or existing practice/intervention; and
  • the feasibility of delivering the service/intervention.

This work is being led by Hannah Austin, Specialist Registrar, NHS Lothian.  The project will be completed by March 2018.
