PHE MIGRANT HEALTH GUIDE 2017

Public Health England (PHE) published a comprehensive update to their Migrant Health Guide in June 2017 : https://www.gov.uk/topic/health-protection/migrant-health-guide

The Migrant Health Guide was first launched by PHE in 2010 as a resource for health professionals working with migrants. This newest version incorporates the latest figures, guidelines and statistics, as well as expanded chapters on mental health, human trafficking, culture, spirituality and religion. In addition to infectious diseases, a range of other key health, social and cultural issues have been highlighted. This update builds on previous versions to support health professionals involved in all aspects of migrant healthcare.

The guide also has a useful section on access to healthcare and entitlements.
