Whether you work in the public or third sector, and whether you are focused on health, housing, education, poverty, or any other area that impacts on health and wellbeing, what you do has an impact on reducing health inequalities and promoting health equity in Scotland.
NHS Health Scotland and the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) have teamed up to work with a variety of third sector organisations, in order to co-design a collaborative learning programme regarding reducing health inequalities in Scotland.
The programme has been designed on the basis that public and third sector organisations will both use and deliver learning opportunities.
They are looking for views on the programme’s draft plan (which is available to download by clicking on the link). As such, they are asking people to complete an online survey, which can be completed in 20 minutes, before Wednesday 12th October.
After this date, NHS Health Scotland and SCVO, along with a steering group of third sector organisations, will work together to take account of the feedback and further develop the learning resources.
There will also be two focus groups to explore the plan, and key issues it raises, in more depth. The groups will last approximately 90 minutes and are being held on the following dates:
- The morning of Tuesday 11th October in Glasgow
- The afternoon of Wednesday 12th October in Edinburgh
To participate in the either of the focus groups, please contact Ian Mathieson by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
