The Guideline Development Group was appointed by letter of the Scottish
Executive Health Department Directorate of Human Resources following the
tasking decided by the Partnership Information Board at its meeting on
11th November 1999.
The remit of the Group is as follows:
1. The GDG should produce a PIN Guideline on the mangement of health at work.
2. The Guideline should set out the principles and practice which underpin the management of health at work.
3. The Guideline should reflect the values and principles of partnership working.
4. The Guideline should include a model procedure for the management of health at work.
5. The Guideline should take account of the HR Strategy Project Group report on the management of health at work, current policies and procedures, legal requirements including the DDA and evidence based good practice in both the public and private sector.
6. The Guideline should outline appropriate indicators of success which
can be used as a basis for future evaluation of the Guideline.
Guideline Development Group Membership
The Partnership Information Network (PIN) Board has established nine Guideline Development Groups to take forward the Board's first work programme. Since the PIN Board is keen to involve as many staff as possible in the development of PIN guidelines it welcomes views on the subjects covered. Because of the challenging timetable of the work of the guideline development it would be helpful to ensure that any views reached the Scottish Executive by the 1st February 2000 at the latest. It is intended that an official website for comments will be set up on Scottish Health on the Web (SHOW) so as to inform and seek comments. However the estimated date for the establishment of the official website is late January 2000. Therefore in the meantime this is NOT the official web page, but is fulfilling these interim functions.
Please email your comments to Dave Watson at the Scottish Executive with a copy to Raymond Agius, the convenor of the Guideline Development Group at the following addresses:- firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com
Efforts will be made so that comments emailed via this route will be considered by the Guideline Development Group even after the official deadline.
Progress Report (updated May 2000)
The Guideline Development Group has met three times and has developed
a draft skeleton working document. Three working groups have been set up
to work in more evidence-based detail on specific aspects of the guideline
and have had various meetings. The rapporteurs from each group have reported.
The draft will be the subject of at least two further iterations. Out of
the first round of the consultation process, three respondents had been
invited to participate in the guideline development as contributory advisers:
