These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
The practice has access to an interpreter service which can be used by any of the clinicians. Please inform a member of staff when making your appointment so this can be arranged for your appointment date.
