As part of our commitment to providing proactive and preventative services, we offer in-house access to a range of health care in partnership with St Clements Surgery. Four days a week we have a doctor or nurse present for those who find it difficult to access healthcare any other way. The surgery provides:
- GP and nurses
- Hepatitis C clinic
- Mental health referrals
- Emotional first aid
- Dental and eye health
To book an appointment with the Doctor or Nurse at Trinity, contact us to add your name to the list, or drop in to the centre.
We work closely with health and housing providers to reduce the likelihood of patients being discharged back onto the streets. We have delivered training to hospital ward staff, discussing factors that may suggest someone is homeless, prompting them to ask the right questions, and raise awareness of issues faced by people who are homeless.
From Head to Toe
Thanks to funding from Hampshire County Council Health and Wellbeing Board, Trinity run a programme of health promotion and interventions aimed at reducing health inequalities and improving life chances for our clients. The rolling project focuses on a different topic every two months, as outlined below, and is available to both Drop In and Women’s Service clients.
January-February: Eating well/nutrition
March – April: Substance Misuse and Harm minimisation
May – June: Mental Health Awareness
July – August: Sexual Health
September – October: Smoking Cessation
November – December: Domestic Abuse awareness
As well as this, throughout the year clients will have opportunities to see a chiropodist, a dentist and have 1:1 sessions with staff and volunteers about health and wellbeing issues, emotional first aid, and dual diagnosis counselling.
