Abstract
Homelessness affects a significant number of people in Scotland, and access to healthcare can be challenging for this group. During COVID-19, people who are homeless are more vulnerable due to their increased risk of respiratory disease and difficulty in self-isolating. Lockdown restrictions can be challenging for those dependent on alcohol.
