HIIA case studies

You can use our guides and resources to help you carry out an HIIA. Our answers to frequently asked questions resource provides case studies.

We supported these case studies.

Scottish Breast Screening Service review

A formal review of the breast screening service was done to ensure it can adapt to meet future challenges, and remain a sustainable high quality and equitable breast screening service.

The National Services Division has more information on their current screening programme (external website).

Developing a primary care resource centre

Dunfermline and West Fife Community Health Partnership (CHP) developed a Primary Care Resource Centre (PCRC) at Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline. This involved closing a well-known local facility and moving various primary care services from some community clinics to provide an integrated and co-located service.

Active travel - Walk Once a Week (WoW) project

Active travel is part of NHS Health Scotland's physical activity work. This walk to school campaign is intended to promote behaviour change among pupils and families, so that every child who can walk to school does so.

The active travel impact assessment sought to identify areas where there were concerns around knowledge gaps of this outcome which would then assist in the development of options and recommendations for the project.
