   establishing a series of pilots aimed at changing individual’s lifestyles and risks around
   smoking, obesity and CVD by Dr Laurence Gruer, NHS Health Scotland. Nevertheless, there
   was discussion around the proposal’s possible potential for the Healthy Living Initiative (HLI)
   in Tayside and it was agreed to invite Dr Gruer and Lindsay McHardy, NHS Health Scotland,          DW
   to come and meet Drew Walker, Paul Ballard, and the Dundee HLI manager, Sheila
   McMahon. A separate meeting will be held with Dr Gruer and Lindsay McHardy regarding
