FEANTSA member, Cymorth Cymru, have released a report on the struggles homeless people face in accessing healthcare in Wales. One third of people surveyed for the report said that health problems have contributed to them losing their home. Nearly a quarter who were admitted to hospital said they were discharged to the streets or "unsuitable accommodation". More than two-thirds of respondents had not had a hepatitis B or flu vaccination and half the eligible female respondents did not have cervical smears or breast examinations on a regular basis.
The report was commissioned by the Welsh Government and includes a number of recommendations which the government said it would consider.
