Dr Peter Buchman & the Pathway Homeless Team, Royal London Hospital

London

Dr Peter Buchman & the Pathway Homeless Team work to improve the healthcare of homeless people in the hospital. They do this by working closely with colleagues both inside and outside the hospital to improve communication between professionals and to advocate for this vulnerable group. They have forged close relationships between primary and secondary care, hospital colleagues, local authorities (housing, social care) and voluntary sector (hostels, outreach teams, day centres). Their aim is for no homeless person to be discharged to the street or without ongoing support.

Nominated by: Jim Fitzpatrick MP
