Poverty Proofing Healthcare Settings

We understand that minimising the impact of poverty on healthcare provision is key to breaking the link between an individual’s income and their opportunity to live a long, healthy life. From patient outcomes to workforce development, performance in healthcare settings is intimately aligned with the financial backgrounds of the individuals involved. 

Our Poverty Proofing© team experts can support healthcare teams to listen to the experiences of their patients, staff and stakeholders on how poverty impacts them. We can then provide tailored guidancebuilt on evidence and tested methods, on what actions can support improvement in areas such as access, participation, experience and long-term engagement.
