13 Weighting the Criteria Weighting of criteria is the opportunity to determine the relative importance of each Can be a complex exercise but we used a technique which simplifies the process We assured results and agreed outcome prior to moving on Last step in the process ahead of scoring options

20 Workshop Evaluation Feedback 24 persons attended 15 persons completed short questionnaire - included 5 members of the public 100% felt they were provided with the support needed during the option appraisal meeting 100% felt they had the opportunity to ask questions/for further information 93% felt their views were listened to during the option appraisal 100% felt they were made aware of how and when feedback will be received

21 Very Positive Feedback

22 Comments received Excellent process – clearly explained and well managed. Dick Fitzpatrick was an excellent choice and led the appraisal very well Well facilitated Interesting and challenging This was a very positive experience. Everyone was listened to and their contributions valued. Excellent facilitation made the process flow Appraisal form should not have been numbered. Too much carbohydrate lunch I felt the views of the public meeting held in Glenrothes & surrounding areas were not made known during this appraisal The whole process for service change needs to be reviewed. The process needs to be shortened for smaller services and Boards needs more clarity over Major Service Change vis-à-vis Service Change

23 Learning for the future Useful to have pre-meeting Clarity about what constitutes “major change” and “service change” Being clear about timescales Healthier lunch!
