Maureen Crane and Louise Joly presented findings from the HEARTH study on Tuesday 30 April 2024 to a meeting of the Homeless Health Partners. They meet once a month, have a focus on policy and services, and include representatives from the Department of Health and Social Care, Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, NHS England and key homelessness partners. The presentation was well received and Groundswell will share it online.

The HEARTH study, which was funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR),  was led by Dr Maureen Crane of the NIHR Health and Social Care Workforce Research Unit at King's as part of the Unit's Homelessness Research Programme. In October 2023,  the study's final report (258pp) was published along with two briefing papers, one for NHS primary care and integrated care commissioners (11pp) and one for NHS primary care managers and practice staff (14pp), which spell out the findings and implications for these professionals.
