NHS have written fact sheets to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly arrived individuals seeking assylum. 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.

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.
