SLAM HBPoS educational programme. Homelessness 101

All Events
by Dr Vivienne Curtis


Health Based Places of Safety are a key feature of London’s crisis care pathway.

Caseloads are a mirror of London life and staff education is a key to high quality service provision. We know that the number of rough sleepers in London has more than doubled in the last 10 years and that for every person sleeping rough, there are estimated to be 13x more ‘hidden homeless’ who are sofa surfing, living in cars or in other precarious circumstances.

Following funding support from HEE London we are able to offer an educational morning focussing on this key area which will aim to improve knowledge and confidence in managing common elements of crisis presentation.

This event will be relevant to all professionals working in crisis settings and anyone from a medical, nursing, social work, police or ambulance background is welcome to attend.

Speakers include:

Dr Vivienne Curtis, Consultant Psychiatrist, Head of School HEE London.

Dr Jenny Drife, Consultant Psychiatrist and RCPsych advisor on homelessness and mental health

Dr Zana Khan, GP in homeless and inclusion health needs

Dr Emma Williamson, Consultant Psychologist and clinical service lead Psychology in Hostels

Please register for your free place.

We look forward to seeing you there.
