Housing and health: building the evidence base
Publication date: 2017
In their words:
“This paper provides a review of the evidence base in relation to projects and pilot initiatives across the UK which bring together health and housing, with a particular focus on older people. Evidence has been included about projects which contribute to:
- Improving health outcomes
- Reducing demand/expenditure
- Improving patient/resident experience
At a time of considerable pressure on budgets and resultant system transformation and service reform across health and social care economies, the review will be used to inform Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network’s (KSS AHSN) planning for future service development and potential investment, particularly around hospital admissions and delayed discharge of care. This is part of the Network’s strategic priority to promote ‘Living Well For Longer’ (LWFL).”
