The economics of housing and health
Three new linked reports by New NHS Alliance and Kings Fund, commissioned by the National Housing Federation, designed to help demystify the health sector’s approach to evidence and help the housing sector to make a coherent business case that the health sector will understand.
A masterclass programme for health and housing
The New NHS Alliance and CIH consultancy are offering a new action research programme for a limited number of health and housing professionals working within the same locality to learn, innovate and implement new services together. This is a fast track programme designed to achieve rapid change in service design between the NHS and core community based partners as a key strand of the new models of care programme.
Closing the health gap: housing and health inequalities
This Housing LIN briefing, written by New NHS Alliance, equips housing, care and support practitioners, and public health teams, with ideas about practical actions they can take to reduce health inequalities.
Housing for Health: a web-based resource for strategic health leads
Housing for health is a resource for strategic leads in general practice, primary care and clinical commissioning. It will help you to understand and engage with housing organisations and to develop important partnerships with other organisations operating beyond NHS boundaries as you take steps to create a wider ‘community of care’ in response to the NHS Five Year Forward View and Sustainability and Transformation Plans.
Housing: Just what the doctor ordered
NHS Alliance and Sitra published this report, Housing: Just what the doctor ordered, to guide housing and housing support organisations through the process of developing new relationships with CCGs and various NHS providers. The report offers practical advice and insight into building relationships and working collaboratively.
Please join the New NHS Alliance if you agree with these values:
- I understand that enabling people to improve their own lives is the most important aspect of a progressive healthcare system (it is more important than ‘improving existing services’)
- I am open to learning and prepared to innovate to find different ways of working that improve people’s lives
- I am open to working with a range of organisations, within and outside the NHS, in pursuit of better health and wellbeing outcomes
- I recognise that people and communities are resource-rich and can hold the solution to improving and preventing poor health behaviours. I am committed to releasing this capacity by enabling people to develop greater levels of Control, Contact and Confidence (the 3Cs of health creation)
- I recognise the emotional labour involved in caring for others and take steps to look after both professional and informal carers
- I believe in and practice parity of esteem between patients and professionals, between the NHS and organisations that contribute to health and wellbeing outside the NHS and between those living with physical and mental health problems
