Summary of report content

Healthwatch Southampton was invited by the Homeless Healthcare Team to conduct a survey around patient experience. They carried out three sessions at two different venues and collected the responses from 36 of the team's clients. Three questions were asked: What is your experience of the Homeless Healthcare Team, including access and ability to see preferred staff?  Is there anything you would like to see improved?  How would you rate your overall experience of the service? (Out of 5) The patients that were surveyed were extremely positive about the service provided by the Homeless Healthcare Team and the vast majority of patients surveyed stated that they did not believe that the service provided by Homeless Healthcare Team needed improvement.
