The aim of the research, was to identify, by working with GYROS in Great Yarmouth, KLARS in Kings Lynn and Keystone in Thetford, whether there are cultural or practical barriers experienced by Norfolk’s migrant worker communities when accessing GP and acute health services in Norfolk. The report concludes that such barriers do exist but that they are complex, arising from differences in cultural norms and practices around accessing such services in countries of origin, as well as in cultural and practical barriers that exist within the UK system.
