Integration of health and social care – latest developments

The HSEU has recently contributed to the development of a Scottish Government action plan designed to build an interface between housing and integrated health and social care.  The action plan sets out actions around strategic commissioning, strategic coordination at a local level and strategic planning along with indicators designed to help local partnerships track their progress.  At an individual level the way that hospital patients’ housing needs could be addressed through improved access to housing advice and housing brokerage is also set out.  The action plan can be accessed here: Housing and IHSC action plan – Spring 2015
