‘What is the rate of general practitioner registration amongst homeless patients who present to an English ambulance service?’Miller, Joshua; McBride, Shaun (2020-10)Marginalised groups such as homeless people and migrants experience barriers to registration with a general practitioner (GP). While various interventions have been trialed to improve registration rates, the potential for opportunistic interventions through the ambulance service has not yet been considered. The aim of this study was to determine the scope for these interventions by researching the prevalence of GP registration amongst the homeless population that present to a regional English ambulance service that covers both rural and urban areas. https://emj.bmj.com/content/37/10/e3.2 This is an Open Access article distributed in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ DOI http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/emermed-2020-999abs.4
