Pathway has today published an OPEN LETTER from London Clinicians COVID-19. London specialist homelessness clinicians and partners are calling on NHS England, Public Health England and the Mayor of London, to help support a rapid COVID-19 response for vulnerable homeless patients.
The letter was published alongside a COVID-19 Homeless Sector Plan produced by Dr Al Story, Clinical Lead Find & Treat and Prof Andrew Hayward UCL Professor of Epidemiology and Inclusion Health.
This action plan is an evolving, practical plan and there are active discussions with colleagues across the NHS, local government and the charity sector about how to mobilise resources to deliver this plan. It is based on the established principles in managing any epidemic. Separate infectious people from non infectious people, keep them apart. Care for and support both groups.
