Royal College of GPs – asylum seekers have right to NHS

Royal College of GPs – “all vulnerable migrants, including refugees and asylum seekers, have the right to be fully registered with a NHS general practice.” It also noted that GPs “have the discretion to register refused asylum seekers, to the same extent that they have this discretion to registering any patient, irrespective of residency status – unless the list is full or the person resides outside the practice boundary.”
