Dr Amanda Stafford
Clinical Lead, RPH Homeless Team
Royal Perth Hospital, Australia
Dr Amanda Stafford is an Emergency Consultant by training and the Clinical Lead of the Royal Perth Hospital Homeless Team, which has been operating since mid-2016. She is also an active advocate at policy level, aiming to change the way our government and community sees homelessness by using data to show that it’s more expensive to leave people homeless than pay the cost of housing and supporting them. She works closely with the School of Population and Global Health at the University of Western Australia to produce data to underpin this effective strategy for social change.
