Discomfort is the price of admission to a meaningful life.

Identifying a gap in the healthcare of vulnerable people in New South Wales, Dr Daniel Nour founded Street Side Medics in August 2020. It’s a not-for-profit, GP-led mobile medical service for people experiencing homelessness.

With 600 volunteers, and ten clinics across New South Wales, Street Side Medics has changed the lives of more than thousands of patients. It has treated many communicable and non-communicable illnesses, dealt with neglected medical needs, and detected conditions that would otherwise have gone unnoticed.

Despite working full time at Royal North Shore Hospital, Daniel has rarely missed a clinic across the sites since Street Side Medics launched. He volunteers his afternoons to ensure the clinics are run smoothly and patients are receiving the care they deserve.

With his leadership and social consciousness, Daniel is committed to making a real difference to the lives of many Australians. He’s also making significant improvements to society.

Daniel's dedication to serving the community, his commitment to Street Side Medics while working full time at Royal North Shore Hospital and his efforts to not miss a clinic across the sites demonstrates his strong sense of responsibility and passion for providing healthcare to those in need.

He volunteers his afternoons to ensure the clinics are run smoothly and patients are receiving the care they deserve.

Talking Points

Bridging the Gap between Homelessness and healthcare

While the impact of homelessness on health is known to be substantial, unstable housing presents many challenges for the delivery of effective medical care. As healthcare providers we don’t always consider the challenges faced by our patients simply to get themselves in front of us. Dr Daniel Nour - 2022 Young Australian of the Year is the founder of Street Side Medics, a service that operates from a mobile van reaching the homeless community across multiple locations. With over 500 volunteers and six clinics across NSW, they have so far helped thousands of vulnerable people in the community, treating a range of illnesses many of which would have potentially gone undiagnosed. Hear about the impact Side Street Medics has had and what this means for you as a GP in NSW.

Dr Nour is an engaging speaker who knows his topic area. Everyone was on the edge of their seat absorbing everything he was saying. We can totally understand why he is the Young Australian of the Year. RX Global

Daniel was amazing, the event we were running was for students from all verticals (design, health, business, education & hospitality). We were a little nervous getting started that the keynote messaging may be more relevant to the health students however this wasn’t the case and the session spoke to everyone. Daniel delivered a fantastic and relatable keynote for all our students and staff and the session had heaps of engagement from our live, online and interstate audiences which is amazing and uncommon. Huge thank you to Dr. Nour for being an amazing kick-off to the event and events on campus. We very much look forward to collaborating with him and Street Side Medics more in the future.

Our conference closed with an inspiring (and at times hilarious) presentation from 2022 Young Australian of the Year, Dr Daniel Nour, who recounted his journey to founding Street Side Medics, the mobile medical van bridging the gap between homelessness and the healthcare system. Daniel's message was, 'if an idea is worth doing, try it.'

Thank you once again! We sent a survey to our employees and yours was the highest ranking session for the entire conference - everyone found you captivating and inspiring!


Excellent speaker with an inspirational story to tell. All attendees were engaged and motivated by what Daniel has achieved at such a young age. Daniel's presentation was entertaining, amusing and highly topical in this time of increasing social inequality we currently face.
