Working together

to integrate health and housing

CIH consultancy and the New NHS Alliance are offering a new action 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 housing partners as a key strand of the new models of care programme.

Housing, social care and health are key in the transformation to place-based working. The requirement to generate sustainability and transformation plans is just the start of a journey that will see the work of health, housing and care professionals, and other community-based organisations increasingly coalesce around places and people. 

An increasing focus on prevention, health creation and out-of-hospital care will require new services that involve new community-based partnerships that bear little resemblance to existing models of service provision.

Why should you join?

  • Achieve outcome-focused initiatives to improve health through effective housing integration
  • Build a business case for housing for health and wellbeing with housing and health partners in your locality
  • Learn from relevant, practical experience with access to specialist advice from experts

  • Evaluate and develop your current practice and approaches during up to three collaborative workshops per locality – with national and local experts from health,housing and care sectors on a range of themes
  • Benefit from site visits to meet with professionals and patients/citizens implementing effective programmes in other localities
  • Receive national learning report that will be published by New NHS Alliance and CIH consultancy, and will be discussed with NHS England and Department of Health
