NHS Health Scotland supports the Scottish Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health. This is a branch of a UK-wide network which aims to support practitioners involved in health care for homeless people and other excluded groups, including Gypsy/Travellers, vulnerable migrants and sex workers. Membership of the Faculty is free and open to anyone working in or interested in the field of inclusion health, including those with lived experience of exclusion. The aim is to improve the quality of health care for homeless people and other excluded groups. We do this by sharing good practice and knowledge, fostering peer support, and creating opportunities for professional development. To join the Scottish Faculty, sign up on the Pathway website and check the box marked Scotland under local meetings. Further information about health and homelessness can be found on Health Scotland’s website http://www.healthscotland.scot/population-groups/homeless-people.
As part of this, QNIS has agreed to provide support for a new network for nurses within the wider Faculty.
