Greenhouse GP Primary Care Practice

19 Tudor Road ,
Hackney,
London,
E9 7SN
8.00am - 6.30pm Monday to Friday. Closed Saturday and Sunday

 The Greenhouse Practice provides care to people living in hostels or supported accommodation, rough sleepers, and people who spend a significant amount of time on the street or in other public places. 
We also support the hidden homeless, such as people in squats or ‘sofa surfers.’

Greenhouse GP practice is run by the Trust in partnership with Groundswell, a charity which works with homeless and vulnerable people. Both organisations have considerable experience of the challenges which face homeless people and in supporting vulnerable individuals. The practice consists of doctors, nurses and administrative staff.

 



You can call us to book an appointment or walk in to be seen.

We welcome referrals and contact from hostel/shelter staff, pharmacists, healthcare providers, social care workers, providers of soup kitchens, anyone who has a concern about someone they know.

The Greenhouse GP Practice shares premises with Hackney Housing officers who offer sessions throughout the week

We work closely with social care workers in identifying homeless people, developing comprehensive care plans, work towards reducing rough sleeping, reducing emergencies admissions, and worsening medical conditions.

We are involved in the teaching and training of other health professionals to better understand the needs of homeless people
