A Current Affair Promotes StreetSide Medics work

Streetside medics ACA

StreetSide Medics is an organisation striving to alleviate the burdens faced by the homeless community of NSW in accessing primary healthcare. Founded by Dr Daniel Nour, NSW Health Pathology's Point of Care Testing team was contacted in 2020 to collaborate in this service. Our service has now provided various devices, including the Abbott Afinion, Abbott Alinity and PixCell Hemoscreen to assist with this initiative to provide better healthcare. Results for this testing is then posted in real-time using our Internet of Things (IoT) technology to the Best Practice medical software for analysis.
