Go Home and Rest?, a new report by Shelter, provides a unique insight into the health problems faced by single homeless people and reveals the health profiles of homeless users of the A&E department of the University College Hospital, London. This study is supported by a growing body of research which demonstrates the harmful effects of homelessness on health, and the obstacles in the way of those who seek care.
