Homeless health trial begins at the Royal London Hospital

The Royal London Hospital is trying a new way of caring for homeless patients to ensure it gets the care they need before and after they leave.

BBC London's Gareth Furby talks to Sophie Tomlinson of homeless charity Thames Reach, Katherine Dane of Tower Hamlets Council, Dr Peter Buchman of the Royal London Hospital and Prof Graham Foster of Barts Health NHS Trust.
