This is the first draft of the interim Integrated Impact Assessment (IIA) report, carried out by Mott MacDonald who are specialists in impact assessment of service change proposals.
The IIA will inform Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton CCGs about the potential positive and negative impacts of any changes to services on communities, as well as any potential solutions the CCGs or Epsom and St Helier Hospital Trust could take to promote and protect the health and well-being of their local communities.
This first draft of the interim IIA report has been agreed by the IIA Steering Group and Independent Chair. This report will be updated to include any additional, relevant information and published prior to a public consultation.
This report will be further reviewed and refreshed in light of the findings from any public consultation to ensure that fair coverage and consideration is given to:
- The range of potential impacts likely to be experienced by the local community and specific community groups within this;
- Any additional data sources which may support analysis of impacts; and
- Any further mitigation actions which may help to alleviate the effects of some of the impacts identified.
We’ve also produced a summary of findings of the first draft IIA interim report which can be downloaded here.
