Warwickshire County Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

I am interested in establishing the level of homeless referrals from NHS hospitals where a patient has been categorized as fit for discharge by the hospital but is at risk of being homeless along with providers of this type of emergency accommodation to the Council.

Please provide
1) The number of NHS referrals received by the council from hospitals for patients being discharged and at risk of homelessness for 2021 and 2022 (or the last 2 years data available).

2) The names of the providers the council uses to provide accommodation in instances of NHS homeless discharge referrals.

3) The number of referrals made to each provider for 2021 and 2022(or the last 2 years data available).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Howard
