A place to call home

I spent a fascinating morning at a Conference in Swansea organised by Homeless Link Cymru on homelessness and health care. I only had time to listen to the keynote speech by Social Justice Minister, Edwina Hart, and an absorbing presentation by Dr. Kay Saunders, a GP in Butetown, Cardiff who specialises in dealing with homeless people, before heading up the M4 for a Committee meeting.

What became clear from the presentation was that the provision of health services for the homeless is patchy in parts and non existent in the main across Wales. Dr. Saunders is the only doctor working with the homeless in this way that we are aware of. Both Edwina and I came away from the Conference determined to try and address this issue.
