Faced with a double whammy of unprecedented financial challenges and rapidly rising need and demand, there is an urgent need for everyone involved in health, housing and social care to work together more effectively. Housing is a crucial determinant of health, and could have a key role to play in helping to deliver key health and social care priorities. Equally, health and social care commissioners have access to resources (however scarce) that could support and further develop the role that housing is already playing in improving health and well-being. Yet all too often housing, health and social care are separate worlds, with few people understanding how each sector works or the key opportunities and barriers which exist.
Against this background, the National Housing Federation has joined forces with the Health Services Management Centre to design a one-day summit to explore what is going on in each policy area, opportunities for greater collaboration and lessons learned from current good practice examples. With input from a mix of policy, research and practice examples, this event will also include plenty of time for interaction with a Question Time style panel of key figures and for networking and informal debate.
This event build’s on the National Housing Federation’s work around ‘Building better health’ and ‘Alternative pathways’ to integrated care and on HSMC’s policy advice to the NHS Future Forum and the social care White Paper team.
