Access to Healthcare Resources from the Equalities and Human Rights Commission
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission has recently published a number of practical materials to improve healthcare access for people seeking and refused asylum. This includes a video which explains what people seeking asylum are entitled to when they access healthcare, as well as a practical guide for organisations working with people seeking asylum, which sets out the rights and entitlements to healthcare for adults and their dependents seeking asylum in England, Scotland and Wales. They’ve also released a series of case studies of healthcare and service providers facilitating access to healthcare for people seeking asylum which highlight good practice in tackling the barriers people in the asylum system are facing when accessing healthcare.
