Research trial of Pathway homeless service features on the BBC


BBC London today reported on the randomised controlled trial we are supporting at Barts Health and in Brighton and Sussex University Hospital. The research trial is funded by a National Insitute of Health Research grant.  it is testing whether we can detect longer term health benefits in homeless patients who have received support from a Pathway team during their time in hospital. The formal trial period started in early 2012 and will finish in June 2013, by which time the research statisticians should have gathered enough data. Dr Peter Buchman, the Pathway’s hospital GP at the Royal London Hospital was interviewed for BBC London Tonight, along with the director of the research study, Professor Graham Foster from Queen Mary’s, University of London.  Click the link below to watch the report.
