Supporting the safe discharge of homeless hospital patients

This guidance document outlines the latest developments in homeless hospital discharge, including the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 and the duty it places on hospital trusts, emergency departments and urgent treatment centres.

With homelessness at record levels in London and hospitals under increased pressure over winter, this guidance document provides a checklist for use by staff on the practical steps they can take and signposts sources of further guidance and advice.
