Case Studies

Local Approaches

  • Health at Work Strategic Plan - Evaluation Report - This report outlines the outcomes and learning from the implementation of the Health at Work Strategic Plan 2008-11
  • NHS Tayside Healthcare Academy - The NHS Tayside Healthcare Academy is part of a modern, innovative Human Resources and Workforce Development Strategy, which aims to ensure a sustainable quality workforce, which is responsive to local population need. It offers 3 programmes, a 6 week Pre-Employment Programme, Modern Apprenticeships and a 36 week SVQ 2 level Foundation programme.
  • Coping with the Stress of Job Loss - NHS Lothian and Edinburgh's Joined Up for Jobs partnership has produced a new leaflet for patients and clients who are affected by job loss caused by the current economic crisis.
  • Bridging Service Toolkit - This Glasgow based service provides an important access route to employability for clients who have not previously engaged with employability due to wider health and/or support issues. It brings together employability advisors with specialist support staff (money advice and occupational therapist) who work together from a common base and on an outreach basis within a primary care, community care and social work context.
  • Behind the Trolley Service originated from the work of Angus Community Health Partnership and Volunteer Centre Angus. Its intention was to undertaken research leading to an evidence based set of recommendations to radically refocus the role of volunteering in Health.
