Major service change reports

Major service change reports

The Scottish Government requires NHS boards to inform, engage, and consult their local communities about proposed service changes, particularly when a proposed change will have a major impact. In such cases a full public consultation is required and the final decision is subject to Ministerial approval.

Where a major service change requires formal consultation, our Service Change Team produces an assessment report that advises if the board's consultation and engagement processes have followed Scottish Government guidance.
