Asylum Seekers and Refugees

Introduction to the NHS for asylum seekers

The NHS has prepared a fact sheet (available in 40 languages) to explain the role of UK health services to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. It covers issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services. Space has been left for health teams to add their contact details, and those of local out-of-hours 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.

Asylum seekers from another EU country visiting the UK and accessing NHS primary care medical services

Practices should treat such visitors as temporary residents. Any person who intends to be in an area for more than 24 hours but less than 3 months is regarded as a temporary resident in that place and can apply to a GP practice to be accepted as a patient on a temporary basis. If the practice does not accept a person as an NHS patient it may offer to treat them on a private fee paying basis.
