Homeless People's Health
Weekly Drop-in Clinic
The Spa Surgery, in conjunction with the Yorkshire Health Network, run a weekly Homeless Health drop-in clinic at Springboard, Harrogate Homeless Project’s day centre. The clinic aims to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community who are homeless or vulnerably housed can access primary health care services. People who are homeless can struggle to access healthcare for a large number of reasons but often have the highest healthcare needs. We look after their physical and mental health as well as supporting with social issues. We work very closely with Springboard and Harrogate Homeless Project staff as well as other partner agencies such as social care and housing to ensure a holistic approach. Safeguarding those who are experiencing abuse or who are at risk of abuse is also a key part of our role at Springboard.
