Haringey Homeless Health Inclusion Team
Bridging the gap to increase homeless patients’ access to primary care
The Haringey Homeless Health Inclusion Team is a multidisciplinary health service which provides holistic support to people experiencing homelessness or rough sleeping in Haringey.
Our goal is to reduce health inequalities by improving access to mainstream primary care amongst the homeless population in our borough.
We work together with various local agencies to provide specialist support to clients living with multiple, often complex, health and social needs, such as those suffering with issues relating to Mental Health, Housing Support and Substance Misuse
The team comprises two specialist GPs, a paramedic, a care navigator and two service managers. The team also benefits from specialist multidisciplinary expertise in Mental Health, Housing Support and Substance Misuse.
