GP practice helping hundreds of rough sleepers wins the London Homelessness Awards

The flying monkey team have been collaborating with Gary Colman, doctor, comedian, producer and screenwriter, for over ten years promoting his creative projects, including the Electric Mouse Comedy Club, and developing film and tv projects.

Meanwhile, in his other job he’s been busy with this…

“Thrilled that our ‘Targeted GP Outreach’ project at Camden Health Improvement Practice has won this year’s London Homelessness Awards for improving health of homeless patients in Camden. Initially set up with help from Turning Point UK, now funded by NHS Camden Clinical Commissioning Group. We’ve seen an increase in life expectancy of our homeless patients at a time when nationally age of death has tragically fallen from 47yrs down to 44yrs. Thanks to Camden staff at Single Homeless Project and St Mungo’s.”
