It's estimated that this guy has treated over 1200 homeless people a year. What an inspiration.

Really enjoyed this - getting medicine to a group of people who find accessing healthcare so difficult. Would love to get involved myself! Is there a list of organisations in the UK who do this kind of thing?

Globalisation and monetisation of healthcare seems to have shifted the balance from patient to profit in many cases. It's so refreshing to see such a selfless approach to delivering real care right where it's needed.

Loved watching this. Opened up my eyes to a part of medicine that I've never even thought about before. Such an inspiration!
