Public Health Scotland have published their reports on process evaluation of the national whole systems approach to healthy weight from the early adopter areas that includes Dundee, for information and awareness. This work was commissioned by PHS and undertaken by SMG.
Whole Systems Approach to Diet & Healthy Weight: Early Adopters
There is also a separate document with case studies that includes the work being taken forward in Dundee with view to roll out across Tayside (this will in turn be informed by ‘local’ evaluation that is being undertaken by NIHR PHIRST North).
The link to the PHS evaluation and case studies is here.
Dr Will Cook, Dietetic Consultant in Public Health at NHS Tayside would like to thank everyone for their time and input with the work taken forward to date, and whilst the report highlights the ongoing challenges, it serves as reminder of the progress that has been made so far- none of which would have been possible without involvement of partners.
