On Friday 9th of November the University of Western Australia and Homeless Healthcare hosted the inaugural homelessness and health forum held at The Platform in Perth. The forum bought together key leaders in the homeless-health field including HHC’s Director Dr Andrew Davies and was timed to coincide with Dr Jim O’Connell from Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program visit to Perth. Other speakers included Dr Amanda Stafford from the Royal Perth Hospital Homeless Team and Dr Hannah Seymour from the Sustainable Health Review. The forum was opened by the Honourable Minister Simone McGurk and concluded with a lived experience panel to identify and discuss gaps in the health care system for people experiencing homelessness in Perth.
