Pathway believes everyone has the right to good healthcare. Our teams support homeless people in 11 hospitals across England bringing together NHS doctors, nurses, mental health professionals, occupational therapists, housing officers, social workers and others to help over 3000 patients a year.
We also run training programmes for people who have been homeless, carry out research, support a network of 750 homelessness professionals and teach doctors and nurses about treating homeless patients.
To transform the quality of healthcare experienced by rough sleepers and single homeless people across the UK, by developing and sharing the best models of compassionate care; building on these models to improve health service provision for other multiply excluded groups; and so improve the health outcomes for the most marginalised in British society.
Pathway aims to:
- To support, strengthen and spread our existing Pathway service models and networks across the UK
- To develop the variety of services operating within the Pathway network ensuring service users are at the centre of the development
- To research, test and evaluate new and additional Pathway services and build the evidence around homeless and inclusion health
- To support and develop the Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health by bringing together health and social care professionals and people who are experts through lived experience from across the UK
- To lead a growing cohort of dedicated, specialist professional health workers putting compassion at the heart of their practice and promote the highest clinical standards for homeless healthcare
