Health impact assessment recommended for health and wellbeing boards

This document provides an overview of the health impact assessment (HIA) process.

Drawing on the work of NHS South of Tyne and Wear, it outlines the key stages of the process and provides a case study which demonstrates how this process might be used to influence decision-making and service delivery.

This document will enable HWB members to understand the process of assessing the health impact of a particular change of policy or new development, service or strategy in order to include HIAs within their local joint health and wellbeing strategy or commissioning plans.
