The Queen’s Nursing Institute’s Homeless Health Programme’s goal is to help create the best possible healthcare for the homeless, and it contributes by helping community nurses to improve their learning and practice with homeless patients.

On Wednesday January 27th 2016, the programme will be holding a free event for health professionals and commissioners about ‘Improving Mental Healthcare for People Who are Homeless’. The one-day workshop features speakers Thea Stein, Chief Executive of Leeds Community NHS Trust, Cheryl Kipping, Dual Diagnosis Lead Nurse at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and Dr Alice Haynes, Senior Research and Policy Lead at the NSPCC.

The event comes at a time of great challenge to mental health services, as evidenced today by the King's Fund:
