Subject:        Rough sleepers in A&E




Please can you tell me if the trust has found rough sleepers sleeping in any of its A&E departments or other areas of hospitals at any point over the last five years?

If so, please tell me how many rough sleepers and on how many occasions for each year over the last five years.




We do not record this information. but we have occasional rough sleepers around the Trust, sometimes in the Church, sometimes Main Entrance area and sometimes in A&E.


They are politely and gently moved on.
