In October 2016 NHS Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group (H&R CCG) established an 18-month pilot project to fund installation of major heating and insulation measures in properties in wards with the highest levels of fuel poverty in Hastings and Rother. The programme was delivered through the Winter Home Check Service (WHCS), which is commissioned by East Sussex County Council’s Public Health Team, and offers advice, home visit assessments, provision of small preventative measures and the coordination of installation of major heating/insulation measures (where funding allows). The University of Brighton were commissioned to carry out an evaluation to provide a greater understanding of the impact of H&R CCG’s Healthy Homes programme on psychosocial wellbeing and health.
