Abstract

The purpose of this study has been to collect further evidence of the health needs of homeless people in Aylesbury and Wycombe to inform future commissioning and/or provision of health services to the homeless population of Aylesbury and High Wycombe. Both qualitative and quantitative evidence indicates that the number of people becoming homeless is rising in Buckinghamshire and will continue to rise in the next few years, placing additional pressure on homelessness services. This will also need to be taken into account in service planning. Another factor to be taken into account will be increasing numbers of non-British nationals becoming homeless, who may come to Buckinghamshire looking for work and accommodation near the capital, and will need specialised service support. Overall, while excellent quality service is provided to the homeless population in Aylesbury and High Wycombe by the voluntary sector, there is a clear problem in provision of access to timely and appropriate healthcare, which has severe implications for individual and population health.
