Event description

Description

The Social Care Workforce Research Unit at King's College London will be releasing findings from a systematic mapping exercise throughout England of specialist primary health care services for people who are homeless. The mapping exercise is the first of its kind in England, and is part of a larger NIHR-funded study into the delivery of primary health care to this group (HEARTH study).

At the event, the researchers will describe the geographical distribution of specialist primary health care services for homeless people, the types of models that are in operation, and their key characteristics. The discussion will also focus on the extent to which homelessness services are covered by specialist health services and, where applicable, the experiences of homelessness sector staff in accessing mainstream primary health care services for their clients.
