Health and Well-being

Promoting improvements in the nation’s health and addressing health inequalities is a major cross-cutting policy agenda that requires collaborative working between a range of different organisations in the public and not for profit sectors. Hexagon Research and Consulting has worked with a number of agencies and partnerships to help them evaluate the health impact of their activities and services. For example, we were part of a team that worked on a major project for COSLA examining how local authorities can maximize their contribution to securing health improvement and addressing health inequalities.

Improving mental health wellbeing is one of the Scottish Executive’s health priorities. Hexagon Research and Consulting has gained valuable experience in this important area of work and has contributed to the National Programme for Mental Health and Wellbeing by evaluating a number of new initiatives and developing an online toolkit of resources for Choose Life.
