The Health Protection Agency (HPA) has launched a new online guide for practitioners called the Migrant Health Guide.

The guide gives country specific advice for healthcare professionals treating people who come to live in the UK from abroad. As well as a country profile, the guide highlights some of the key health concerns and risks of infection that may affect migrants from each country listed.  

The guide also covers entitlement to NHS care and a link to a guide to the NHS in 40 different languages.
