Patient stories continued (Video Chest)
Some of the most powerful messages Pathway have to offer comes from our patients. Often the story of their lives, damaged, ignored, disengaged will slowly unravel when they arrive at one of the hospital sites and begin getting healthcare, sometimes for the first time in many years.
Pathway have produced this series of short films with our hospital team members describing their work with homeless patients, and how our teams work with partners inside and outside hospital. We hope they are useful for colleagues introducing new teams in other partner hospital trusts.
