Case studies on the discharge of homeless people from hospital by local authorities and hospital trusts. Looks at different approaches adopted by Newcastle and West Sussex housing authorities and Guys and St Thomas's NHS Foundation Trust, and the relative merits of adopting a protocol for staff to follow and recruiting a specialist member of staff. Recommends that hospital discharge should be seen as a key part of wider local systems for homelessness prevention.
