This Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health is an multi-disciplinary network focused on health care for homeless and excluded people.
Led by Dr Nigel Hewett and hosted by Pathway, the network brings together clinicians and people with experience of homelessness in the Faculty. The Faculty brings together people who care, re-affirming the fundamental right for all patients to be treated with dignity, compassion and respect.
Members include paramedics, podiatrists, dentists, professors of epidemiology, psychiatry and infectious diseases, general practitioners, hospital consultants, specialist and district nurses, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors, drugs workers and alcohol specialists.
Following publication of the Inclusion Health Service Standards for Commissioners and Service Providers, the Faculty has worked on:
- Improving data sharing across services for people who are homeless
- Emergency medicine and homelessness
- Developing shared approaches to clinical governance for homeless health services
- Providing CPD and networking support
We work hard to ensure that our research is free and open access wherever possible. Click here to visit the Faculty publications page.
The Faculty is currently free to join and membership is open to any professional who works in this area. People with personal experience of homelessness and an interest in changing health services are warmly welcomed.
Membership offers free clinical updates on areas of interest, and chance to meet colleagues through free regional meetings across the country. Faculty members receive discounts to the annual Homelessness and Health conference, bringing together hundreds of delegates from across the world to share the latest developments, research and evidence.
