Quick Guide: Health and Housing - Transforming Urgent and Emergency Care Services in England


This is one of a series of online quick guides, supported by the Housing LIN, that provides practical tips and case studies to support health and care systems.

This new NHS England Health & Housing quick guide provides practical resources and information on how housing and health can work together to prevent and reduce hospital admissions, length of stay, delayed discharge, readmission rates and ultimately improve outcomes; in particular, signposting to examples of joint working that have prevented a hospital admission or reduced health inequalities.
