The delayed impact of recession is increasingly being felt in health and social care with particular impacts on health outcomes for homeless people and other excluded / marginalised groups.
This meeting of experts will draw on important insights about long term impacts from recession in the UK and internationally, and hear about ways some services are bucking the trends and delivering improved health and wellbeing for vulnerable people.
