One of my best friends recently informed me he's going blind. He's a friend I've known since I was 11 and I've seen on and off since then (He lives in Australia, I live in England). Apparently he has non cancerous growths growing behind both eyes. I asked if it was possible to operate and he said no because of the scarring. The healthcare there from what he tells me is appauling and so I've talked him into moving here so that he has better opportunities and I can help him (He's been homeless for the past 2 years due to family problems). He should easily be granted citizenship but I dont know if its possible healthcare here could cure the problem on the NHS, if or how I could register as his carer and find all the necessary support organisations (wellfare, housing etc).

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
