Housing to Health
The Housing to Health project is delivered by Nottingham City Homes in partnership with Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group.
The project aims to improve links between housing and health in Nottingham bu providing a 'hand-holding' service to speed up a patients hospital discharge, or working within the community to intervene before individuals are hospitalised due to unsuitable accommodation.
Housing to Health Co-ordinators act as the referral point and are responsible for finding suitable accommodation from Nottingham HomeLink vacant properties.
Reducing bed blocking to:
- save the NHS money
- free up high demand hospital beds

Helping people to stay healthy, for longer, by:
- encouraging proactive referrals
- preventing hospital admissions / re-admissions
- providing appropriate accommodation that are safer for people to live in
- reducing the need for costly adaptations
