Our homeless health service is an open access, outreach service which takes primary care into non-NHS settings.

Provided on the street, in daycentres, hostels and specialist GP practices, we make the NHS available to people who otherwise have difficulty gaining access to care.

Our team consists of nurses and counsellors, with additional input from the Trust’s dentistry team as well as the podiatry team who provide walk-in clinics Monday to Friday.

The aim of this crucial service is to relieve suffering, provide public health screening, offer help and support with rehousing, return patient’s to mainstream services and remove the need to use accident and emergency for primary care.

If you see a person living on the street that you are concerned about please get in touch with us or contact Street Link.

Our homeless health teams cover a range of areas, including:

  • Counselling services - both face to face and group sessions
  • Physical health problems
  • Advocacy, supporting housing claims and tenancy support
  • Screening, advice and support
  • The team are based at a number of daycentres:
    • The Passage Homeless Resource Centre•West London Daycentre (Seymour Place)
    • The Connection at St Martin in the Fields
    • The Market Lane Day Centre (Broadway Centre)
The team also undertake street outreach shifts and visit local hostels.

The counselling part of the service provides 'Pre-treatment Therapy', which is increasingly drawing national and international interest. It consists of personality disorder (pd) informed counselling which takes into account the traumatic origins of single homeless people, their chaotic circumstances, trauma reactions, compromised 'mentalisation' and their need to self-medicate.

The homeless health counselling service enables people to move from an unstructured form of engagement to a more structured one at a rate which is sustainable for them, and which lays the foundation from which to engage constructively with the more structured approaches of mainstream services.
