Royal North Shore Hospital doctor Daniel Nour has been named Young Australian of the Year for 2022.
In 2020 Daniel founded Street Side Medics – a not-for-profit, GP-led mobile medical service for people across NSW experiencing homelessness.
The free service operates from a van fitted with the necessary equipment to provide primary healthcare services to homeless communities across multiple locations.
Chief Executive Deb Willcox said Daniel is so deserving of this award for his work delivering medical support to people experiencing homelessness.
Over the last two years Street Side Medics has grown to a team of 250 volunteers across four clinics in New South Wales.
The service aims to alleviate the barriers limiting access to healthcare by treating people with neglected medical needs and detecting conditions that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
