Healthcare Guidance – Translated

Meeting the initial health needs of vulnerable migrants – translated health guidance and patient questionnaire for newly arrived migrants in the UK.

The Bi-lingual patient health questionnaires have been developed for commissioners and GP practices to support this initial health assessment and management of newly registered vulnerable migrants, including people seeking asylum and those arriving under Government relocation schemes.

There is also an English/blank version of the form so that it may be translated into different community languages where local needs require.

There is an adult version of the form and a version for children (age 0-15 years) which can be completed by the parent/guardian. We envisage that competent 16 and 17-year-olds will be able to complete the adult form for themselves.
