Call for Evidence: Reducing health inequalities for people living with frailty

As part of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, we are working with Friends, Families, and Travellers to deliver a project which aims to help NHS England identify:
  • Why there are inconsistences in delivery of healthcare services to disadvantaged people experiencing frailty earlier in life
  • Opportunities to reduce and overcome the barriers to accessible health care that disadvantaged people experiencing frailty earlier in life face.
  • How services and examples of good practice have successfully overcome the barriers to health care services that exist.
  • Opportunities for primary and secondary health and care services to support people and to prevent the early onset of frailty.

As part of this project we are issuing a call for evidence for examples of best practice for services that have improved access to and experience of health care services for disadvantaged people living with frailty much earlier in life. This includes within health and social care, the voluntary sector, grassroots community groups and more.
