Primary Care practitioners can now access a broad range of information to help them look after patients who have come to live in the UK from abroad, following today’s launch of a free-to-use online resource by the Health Protection Agency (HPA).
The Migrant Health Guide is intended to be a “one stop shop” for information to support GPs and nurses in assessing and treating migrant patients, in recognition of the fact that these patients sometimes have health needs which are more complex than those of UK born patients. It will provide health professionals with the information they require quickly and easily and it is hoped that this will, in turn, improve patient care and quality of life.
The guide has been developed by a team of clinical and public health experts, as well as primary care practitioners, in collaboration with the HPA’s travel and migrant health section. It has been endorsed by both the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Nursing.
