Healthcare at home

'Reaching Out: Nursing Homeless People'

Homeless people in the UK experience much poorer health than the general population. Yet they often have problems getting the healthcare that they need.

The QNI made a short film that shows nurses at work in the community with their homeless patients. It highlights both the problems faced by homeless people and why nurses need more support in order to improve their health.

With thanks to Jane Gray, Consultant Nurse (Leicester) and Fiona Lerner, Team Leader/Health Visitor (Bradford) and their patients, who made this film possible.
