Dr Katie Sales
Royal United Hospital Bath
I am an SHO at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. I studied graduate Medicine at Birmingham after doing an undergraduate degree in Biology at Exeter University. Whilst in Exeter I volunteered at a homeless shelter, and before starting medicine I worked in rural Zambia delivering healthcare to a poverty stricken area of the Lufwanyama District. Having worked in MAU and ED I have first hand experience of the revolving door and health problems associated with homelessness, and became increasingly aware of the paucity of provision for discharge. This year I have initiated the process for institution of a homeless healthcare team within the RUH to begin to counteract this.
