Help with understanding healthcare for asylum seekers and refugees
At Healthwatch Surrey we are keen that everyone can get the health services they need.
Most health care in the UK is provided by the National Health Service (NHS).
A Trifold leaflet – How to access the NHS is available on the Doctors of the World website, translated into many different languages.
For other languages, please visit the Doctors of the World website
Other information about health services is also available on their website: Translated information for Patients
The Forrest Medico Legal services website has the NHS guide for asylum seekers in several languages:
Tamil (Tamil Nadu & Sri Lanka)
Tigrinya (Eritrea & N Ethiopia)
The NHS website has lots of information about health care and services, available in different languages. Visit the NHS website – Health information in other languages
