NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) are working in collaboration with colleagues, stakeholders, and young people to ensure that health improvement actions to mitigate health issues for young people are robust and co-ordinated to achieve best possible outcomes and impact.
Glasgow City Youth Health Improvement Leads (Y-HIL) Group is the central vehicle for the planning, co-ordination and exploration of any health and wellbeing inputs into a community setting. Community setting – this includes all settings other than education. For education settings quality assurance process click here. Y-HIL aims to support health colleagues by providing an agreed process for assessing all Health and Wellbeing (HWB) inputs into community setting.
The (Y-HIL) will utilise a Quality Assurance (QA) process (including assessment of a quality assurance application form and pathway) to support the planning as an ongoing function. Champions identified across each locality will support the QA process. This will complement the QA process already in operation for assessment of Health Improvement input into the Education setting by the Health Improvement Education group (HIEG). All new areas of work in the community will be submitted to the Y-HIL as a proposal for information and for ensuring robust communication at a City level. However, any curricular educational input that is being delivered to schools under the neighbourhood / thriving places programme should follow the Education QA Process via HIEG. Where a pilot has been approved, and subsequently demonstrates evidence of impact, roll out across Glasgow City may be agreed/requested following the QA process.
While submitting applications, Health Improvement staff should be aware that Y-HIL will consider HWB inputs that are developed, delivered or funded by Health Improvement.
