Deadline 28th June
Kingston upon Hull City Council and NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (“the Commissioners”) are seeking to commission a Homeless Health Service through an open procurement procedure.
The preferred Provider will be required to demonstrate how they will deliver a clinically safe, high quality, dignified, and cost-effective service that puts the individual at the centre of their own care and work to transform health outcomes for one of the most vulnerable and deprived groups in society.
The key principles of service delivery are to:
- Provide a seamless pathway for individuals who are homeless who present in hospital and those who are discharged (hospital-based intervention); and who are identified in the community who have unmet health needs (community intervention);
- Work in a trauma informed way, creating a trauma informed environment and led by a trauma informed and responsive organisation;
- Provide pro-active and personalised care to people to homeless people;
- Improve access to appropriate health and social care services for people experiencing homelessness;
- Improve the experience of health and social care services for individuals who are homeless;
- Liaise and work with key local partners, stakeholders and services to support the health and care interventions provided to individuals who are homeless.
