Health Minister Soubry Announces £10m funding to Solve Problems of Homeless People
There are a number of charities that work with the NHS and local authorities to help homeless people when they are discharged from hospitals. It has been seen that these people often get discharged even when their problem has not been completely addressed.
In order to solve the problem, Health Minister Anna Soubry has announced £10m funding for these voluntary organizations. Soubry said that they have been providing the funds, so that this vicious circle of homelessness, poor health and re-admission can be stopped.
"We are making £10m available to the voluntary organizations to help make sure homeless people get the support that they need when they leave hospital", said Soubry.
Soubry continued by affirming that problems of these people are not getting solved, which leads to hospital re-admission. This factor is doing nothing except increasing the cost of the NHS as well as causing trouble to homeless people.
Experts said more than 66% homeless people are discharged from hospital without solving their housing and health problems. Homeless Link, national charity that represents organizations, has appreciated the funds.
Chief Executive Rick Henderson said that the issue is in existence for a long time. It is expected that with the help of funds, this problem will be solved.
