The Homerton Inclusion Health Team launched in January 2022.

The Hackney Inclusion Health Team launched in January 2022, brought together in partnership with Homerton University Hospital, the City and Hackney Centre for Mental Health, NEL CCG, ELFT, Hackney Council and the Peabody Trust. 

The team is made up of a GP, nurse, occupational therapist, social worker, peer link workers and a housing worker. The team work with specialist community support services and access step down accommodation. 

The team support and advocate for homeless patients, improve patient care, enable safe discharge and follow-up in the community. They also help to train hospital staff to identify homelessness, and host regular multi-disciplinary team meetings to ensure the ongoing progression of complex cases. 

Referrals to the service are accepted from within the hospital, GPs, supported housing providers, local authorities or from people experiencing homelessness themselves. 

Thanks to the collaborative approach taken, Alex’s leg ulcers have improved and he’s continuing to engage with drug and medical services – he hasn’t been back in hospital for nearly five months.
