Highlighting gaps- 

Research into highlighting gaps has found that service in health and social care is extensive and that in more deprived areas health is still extremely poor and many different groups of people such as the homeless and the elderly do not use or have access to all services that are available.

The homeless people are the most vulnerable and the most in need of support however these people are the ones who find it particularly difficult to access the support and services they require. Health care is an area in which they can struggle as they are unable to register with a GP preventing them from obtaining regular health care check-ups, leaving them to feel that presenting themselves at an acute setting such as A&E is their only option. The society we live in is constantly changing with complex health and social care needs and some of the needs are not always met. An example of this is if you do not have a good understanding of English you may not be able to identify your needs and which services you need. Some groups in society are prioritised such as the elderly and other marginal groups.
