There is a dedicated and specialist service for homeless people, and rough sleepers, in central Birmingham. To allow the clinical commissioning group (CCG) to design a service that fully meets the needs of this community, the CCG’s Primary Care Committee have agreed an extension of the current contract. The current service will remain in place until a new contract is awarded. The CCG will carefully monitor the quality of the services provided. A health service for homeless people in Birmingham will be developed and procured within the next two years.
In addition to a bespoke general practitioner (GP) practice for homeless people in Birmingham, all homeless patients have the right to register with any GP practice that is local to them.
