StreetDoctors work was featured in The Guardian’s Beyond the Blade series in May 2017.

StreetDoctors highly commended in the Healthcare and Medical Research category at the Charity Awards 2016 

The Charity Awards is the sector’s most highly-regarded excellence recognition scheme. All 30 shortlisted charities were judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice from which other organisations can learn.

We are really delighted to have been highly commended for such a prestigious award. It is fantastic recognition for our amazing student medics across the country who teach much needed emergency lifesaving skills to vulnerable young people at risk of violence. Our work would not be possible without their efforts, and the young people we teach, who have passed their skills onto friends and family and are equipped to assist in medical emergencies. We are hugely grateful to all our supporters, our funders, and our many local delivery partners. Together they have helped us to grow from one team in Liverpool in 2008, to a national charity with 18 teams in 14 cities across England. Thanks also to our founders, Dr. Simon Jackson, Dr. Nick Rhead and Dr. Charlotte Neary-Bremer who took a brilliant idea and turned it into StreetDoctors!
