Primary care platform will support 'equity of access' for new migrants



An online information tool for everyone working in primary healthcare, aims to ensure new migrants receive the same access to healthcare as everyone else.

https://migrant.health/  is the result of a collaboration involving Doctors of the World (DOTW) UK, the University of Sheffield and Yoomee. It offers practical support and information to help primary care professionals care for migrants, particularly those in vulnerable circumstances.

Migrant health has fact sheets covering areas such as healthcare entitlement, how to guides, the facility to share ‘bright ideas’, links to national resources and a community platform to ask and respond to colleagues.

Dr Elizabeth Such from our Public Health and Inequalities theme  “migrant.health shows the strength of research and practice working together to co-create a tool that we hope will ultimately improve people’s health."
