Dental Clinic success at The Bridge
The Bridge Homelessness to Hope in Leicester run regular health clinics where GPs, alcohol and drug counsellors and other mental health professionals, along with an army of volunteers, come together to provide both physical and mental health support, and advice to people experiencing homelessness.
In January 2023, 13 guests were seen at the dental clinic at the Doncaster Road Dental Practice, Leicester, with assessments carried out and treatments provided including extractions, fillings, scaling/hygiene and prescriptions. Transport for the guests was also provided by Sri Sathya Sai Organization, Leicester.
"Thank you to all the volunteers, and to Doncaster Road Dental Practice for opening exclusively for our guests, and to their staff for volunteering. In the future, we’re considering extending the offer to other homeless charities if spaces are available and developing an online booking system."
