CIH Conference Think Tank - Local authorities and housing associations unlocking access to NHS Land

Identifying new opportunities in housing delivery

The UK government has set a national target for the NHS to provide land for 26,000 residential units by April 2020. This policy sits alongside other key NHS policy drivers for efficiency and service transformation arising from the Five Year Forward View and the more recent Carter and Naylor reports. It is clear that the NHS, local authorities, housing associations and the private sector will need to work together to achieve it. But what are the challenges not only to achieving these ambitious targets but also to ensure a better health and social care service is created as a result? This session will examine the issues from the NHS and the housing sides of the debate, considering:

  • The NHS perspective: policy drivers and organisational structures
  • Successful ventures between the NHS and housing, social services
  • Housing's role in NHS targets and how to engage it
