Discharged into the snow

February 03 2010
Straight from hospital to the street...
 January began with an Evening Standard story on a homeless man being discharged during the first week of the New Year onto London's freezing streets.

It's not a surprise. We'll be chasing the detail, as we've covered similar stories before. In the London edition of May 2008, we looked at readers being discharged back to the streets and at the guidelines that are there to advise hospitals on how to deal with homeless outpatients.

We'll be revisiting this for the March issue (London and online).
