As part of a developing programme on prevention and the economics of prevention What Works Scotland and NHS Health Scotland ran this half-day seminar exploring challenges of adopting a preventative approach.

The event brought together experts from Police Scotland, housing and early years. The discussion focused on how they have achieved a shift to prevention in the design and delivery of their services, what this has meant in terms of the way their services are run and how it has been enacted.

The topics and speakers were:

  • Policing & Prevention by Chief Inspector Alastair Muir, Specialist Crime Division, Safer Communities Scottish Crime Campus, Police Scotland, and PC Dario D’andrea
  • Early Years Prevention by Rebecca Campbell, Health Improvement Lead (Tobacco), NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde National Tobacco Control Adviser, Scottish Government, and Professor David Tappin, Professor of Clinical Trials for Children University of Glasgow and Honorary Consultant Paediatrician NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
