The King's Health Partners Pathway homeless team

Working with homeless patients attending or admitted to hospital

Our service

The King's Health Partners Pathway homeless team works with homeless patients attending or admitted to Guy’s and St Thomas’, King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts.

The team includes:

  • GPs
  • nurses
  • occupational therapists
  • a social worker
  • housing workers
  • peer advocate.

They aim to maximise the clinical benefit of admissions, and improve discharge outcomes (including reconnecting patients with their families, and home area where this is relevant). They also befriend and support clients when they are in hospital, and work hard with frequent attenders to resolve their issues.
