During November to December 2019 we planned a joint venture with Healthwatch Derby to investigate homeless people’s experiences of health and social care in Derby City Derbyshire.
We engaged with those who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless to ask them about their experiences of using health services (including mental health services). We also wanted to find out whether they had encountered any difficulties in accessing services, and what these difficulties were.
The information gathered will be shared with those who run, choose and buy health services in Derby and Derbyshire to help ensure services provided are easy to use and of good quality.
Next steps: The full report will be available on our website once complete and responses have been received.
