Mapping of primary care health services for people who are homeless

Mapping of specialist primary health care services in England for people who are homeless
King’s College London February 2018
  • A study that maps primary health care services for people who are homeless in England found  significant variation in the type of service available, with some areas poorly covered. Of the 900 homelessness projects (hostels and day centres) that were surveyed by the researchers, only 43% were linked to a specialist primary health care service.
  • The report does not comment on the quality of the services. 
  • A separate report (inventory) gives information about 77 of the identified services.
