Addressing health inequalities in homeless children, young people and families learning resource and toolkit.
Health and Wellbeing Alliance latest update
The aim of the ‘Reducing Health Inequalities for People living with Frailty’ project is to help NHS England identify:
- Why there are inconsistences in the delivery of healthcare services to disadvantaged people experiencing frailty earlier in life
- Opportunities to reduce and overcome the barriers to accessible health care that disadvantaged people experiencing frailty earlier in life face
- How services and examples of good practice have successfully overcome the barriers to health care services that exist
- Opportunities for primary and secondary health and care services to support people and to prevent the early onset of frailty
The project will include a series of focus groups and seminars aimed at the voluntary and community sector, NHS providers, and people with lived experience.
A call for evidence is currently underway to gather examples of best practice that have improved access to and experience of health care services for disadvantaged people living with frailty much earlier in life.
The first seminar event will be held on 28 November 2019, aimed at NHS providers, NHS England, voluntary sector organisations and people experiencing disadvantage and frailty. Visit the event page for details and to register.
