Blurring boundaries between ‘Health’ and ‘Housing’,

Jon Pritchard, Southern Health’s first Associate Director of Housing.

I realised that bringing these traditionally separate areas together and working smarter, produces better outcomes for patients and is a more efficient use of collective resources. I truly feel that being able to drive that change through the lens of the NHS is both humbling and rewarding.

This is such an exciting and important step forward. Together, we are deliberately blurring the traditional boundaries between ‘Health’ and ‘Housing’, meaning the people we care for can access the right support, at the right time, in the right place, regardless of who they contact.
