STREET Doctor is a mobile GP clinic that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of homeless, transient, disadvantaged and marginalised people in the Perth area.

It is an easily accessible, non-judgemental health service that works closely with other community services to promote interest in community health.

The program is run by a doctor and a nurse, with outreach workers and a mental health outreach worker providing support to those accessing the clinic services.

The Street Doctor truck operates six days a week, maintaining the same times and locations each week.

The clinic operates on a drop in/walk in basis, where waiting times may vary. Appointments times are not allocated.

Students from Helena College have been offering their time to hand over winter items that they have collected in recent months.

These four students from Helena College Darlington campus have helped as volunteers for one term at school.
