Health Inclusion Team – Lambeth

Overview

A nurse-led specialist community health inclusion team, part of the NHS, to support vulnerable people who have difficulty accessing primary care services (eg GPs  and nurses), such as homeless people, refugees, asylum seekers and people with addictions.

The clinics are run at day centres, drug and alcohol services and hostels in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham.  They are all drop-in services so an appointment is not required.

The team offers a range of free and confidential services:

  • full health assessment
  • screening for blood borne viruses
  • sexual health screening
  • routine blood tests
  • treatment for minor illnesses, wounds or injuries
  • advice on how to manage long term diseases
  • advice and intervention for people with long term pain related to traumatic experiences
  • health promotion for young people in homeless hostels
  • referral to other services where necessary.
