Some services target specific groups (for example, women, young people, those with mental-health issues), while, for others, the only referral criterion is that patients are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The Camden Homeless Health and Care Network was established in autumn 2017. The network is looking into a range of issues for homeless and vulnerable people across Camden including the current healthcare provision and the impact of NRPF (no recourse to public funds). Dr Jasmin Malik chairs the meetings and will keep Camden practices informed of updates.
Camden Foodbank offers food vouchers for homeless patients. To order vouchers, e: email@example.com or call 020 7387 4551 or 07984796902 or 07947197575. See downloads for the patient leaflet.
The Pavement is a booklet which comes out every two months and has details of shelters, foodbanks, and health services for homeless people. It's useful for signposting and small enough to fit in a patient's pocket. Practices can order copies by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
