Excess winter deaths, fuel poverty and flu

Impact and effectiveness

Information on the clinical and cost effectiveness of programmes to reduce excess winter deaths is limited, partly because it is difficult to evaluate complex interventions and partly because it is difficult to evaluate simple interventions directed at complex problems.

The Warm Homes Healthy People programme cost £79,221 in 2012/13 and reached 833 people.  It is not possible to say what effect this had, directly or otherwise, on the rate of excess winter mortality.
