The London Pathway for homeless healthcare
Based in University College London Hospital (UCLH) in Camden, the service has a dedicated homelessness nurse and a specialist homelessness GP working on the wards of the hospital.
They co-ordinate proper care across all hospital departments, work with patients on underlying mental health and substance misuse problems, and through their attention to detail and advocacy, make sure that homeless patients get all the care they need and are entitled to. This includes making sure that patients are also supported after they have left the safety of the hospital.
