The HealthBus Trust

The HealthBus provides a mobile health facility that travels to areas where people sleep rough, providing basic health care, a GP service and access to addiction and mental health support services across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

The HealthBus had 731 appointments in 2020. Operating on two mornings a week.

In April 2021 we had 113 appointments. Our busiest month on record.

Bill, aged 37, was sleeping rough during the winter months but has now been placed in temporary emergency accommodation due to the Covid Pandemic, said:

“This service saved my life when I was living on the streets. I was a mess and had given up. The HealthBus Team were so kind to me and have helped restore my hope in people. I have a long journey ahead out of addiction but am getting the help and support I need”.
