About Homeless Project
SHM run the Salford Homeless GP Project, based at Salford Loaves and Fishes and The Windsor Drop In Centre.
We can register homeless people who are living in the Salford area or people staying in recognised temporary accommodation in the Salford area.
We offer a full range of medical services and on-going medical care, including routine checks and blood tests, and full health care advice. We maintain a caring, non-judgemental and integrated approach, proactively referring our patients to the services they need. We also operate a needle exchange scheme.
New patients registering before 10.00am can usually see our GP at the Windsor Centre on the same day.
See our Health Navigator to register with our GP practice and for signposting to complementary services/agencies as well as on-going support with general issues.
We are based at Salford Loaves and Fishes and The Windsor Centre on Mondays / Wednesdays / Thursdays:
9.00am - 3.00pm - Health Navigator (Salford Loaves & Fishes: 9-12pm, The Windsor Centre: 12-3pm),
12.30pm - 2.00pm - GP
10.30am - 12.30pm - Health Care Assistant (Every other Wednesday only)
(Note: we do not currently work bank holidays)
We have good working relationships with The Windsor Drop In Centre, Narrowgate Night Shelter, the Drug and Alcohol Team, Citizens Advice Bureau, Sexual Health services, counselling services, and other local homeless projects.
On occasion (where appropriate) we can arrange for our patients to be seen at our other SHM GP practices when the Windsor Centre is closed or if the patient cannot attend our clinical surgeries at the Windsor. See our Health Navigator for more details.
We are a teaching practice and occasionally have medical students / other professionals in training on site, and we encourage our patients to engage with these, but we always respect our patients wishes if they do not wish to do so.
The service is primarily staffed by: Dr Wan-Ley Yeung (General Practitioner), Dr Jocelyn Rostron (General Practitionerr), a Health Care Assistant and the Health Navigator.
When any of our primary staffing team are on annual leave, we arrange cover with staff from our other SHM GP Practices.
