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.
If the GP decides that you require treatment in a hospital or other setting (referred to as Secondary Care), there may be a charge for this treatment to non-EU residents.
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.
