    Fair System? A Healthwatch Report

    Fair System? A Healthwatch Report

    "I have the right to access treatment and register with a GP practice," says Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire on behalf of homeless people.

    'Fair System?' reports on Healthwatch ERY's own research into whether it is easy for people with no address and no identification to access primary care services in the NHS in East Yorkshire. A new 'registration rights card' has been introduced to empower rough sleepers to access health care, and to remind local GPs of the national guidelines.

    Matthew Fawcett, Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire Manager, and Chris Mills, Community Outreach Officer, explain the research and the recommendations.

    RHM Recovery - Christian faith & homeless action

    RHM Recovery - Christian faith & homeless action

    In this episode I ask the thorny question 'Are Christian churches doing enough to help the homeless?' Soup kitchens, food banks, clothing and sleeping bag handouts - they are all welcome, but I wonder whether churches should have higher aims?

    Revd Paul Linley (left in photo) is CEO of a Christian charity - RHM Recovery - which aims to completely change broken people, especially those with addictions and poor mental health. It's a model of Christian ministry which he believes many more churches could adopt.

    Ian, a former addict and now trustee of the charity, joined the discussion too.

    Kirsty, and Jessie Rossi (Nightstop Host Co-ordinator for Hull), discuss youth homelessness, and the pressing need to find more Nightstop hosts in the city of Hull, UK.
