ABOUT THE SERVICE
The Safetynet In-Reach Primary Care team comprises GP and Nursing services that are provided on site in a number of emergency accommodations and one drop in.
The services is funded by the HSE Social Inclusion adopting the approach to bring health services close to where people are. This approach is based on the evidence that homeless people have different consulting behaviours than the general housed population and a very high burden of ill health. This services has been specifically tailored to the needs of this vulnerable group. The In-reach team work closely with the Inclusion Health team in St James Hospital and the A&E department in the Mater hospital to ensure that there are appropriate pathways for homeless people in and out of hospital care. The team provide GP and nursing clinics, individual follow up and mental health case management.
