We have designed an interactive toolkit to support local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, and integrated care systems across London to conduct homeless health needs assessments.
Helping you deliver integrated care
Conducting a health needs assessment is key to developing and delivering integrated care. Local Authorities must do a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment of the health and wellbeing of their local population, which includes assessing the health needs of people who are, or have been homeless.
The four steps to a homeless health needs assessment
- Set the scene: Identify relevant national, regional and local statistics, resources and guidance
- Learn from others: Identify other good examples of health needs assessments, and gather the evidence of what works
- Assess your own locality: Carry out your own local health needs assessment
- Make a plan: Analyse your findings and make recommendations.
