Digital inclusion project brings healthcare technology to the homeless

Homeless and insecurely housed people in Hastings now have access to medical treatment and support thanks to an innovative digital health care outreach project.

The project has helped 122 homeless people in Hastings by using technology to improve how outreach workers respond to the healthcare needs of their clients. The team communicates with St John’s Ambulance to get clinical opinions on injuries and symptoms.
