Homelessness is deeply injurious to health, but at the same time individuals experiencing it often face difficulty accessing timely, effective care.

Comprehensive, good quality data is crucial for the proper planning of services to address the often complex needs of inclusion health groups. Produced by healthcare management consultancy Carnall Farrar in partnership with Pathway, this paper explores the invisibility of homelessness in NHS data and how this negatively impacts upon such provision.

With reference to real-life experiences of individuals accessing the health care system, the report explores the barriers to progress in data collection and integration, and makes practical recommendations to drive homeless health data compliance and quality.
