Doctors of the World have released a new briefing on the NHS healthcare entitlement of EU citizens, regardless of immigration status.
The briefing identifies three key groups of EU citizens for which NHS healthcare entitlement will differ:
- EU citizens who came to the UK before 31/12/20 with status under the EUSS
- EU citizens who came to the UK before 31/12/20 without status under the EUSS
- EU citizens who came to the UK after 31/12/20
In the briefing, Doctors of the World have also published results of an online survey taken by both EU citizens and supporting organisations:
• 18% of the participants mentioned encountering issues when applying to the EU Settlement Scheme with a large majority mentioning issues with documentation and the website as the key reasons behind their difficulties
• 5% mentioned being asked to prove their immigration status when registering with a GP
• Amongst those asked to prove their immigration status when accessing hospital care, 22% were then unable to receive treatment due to issues in verifying their status
The Leeds Public Health Resource Centre (PHRC) supports anyone with a responsibility for or interest in improving health and wellbeing in Leeds, including students and volunteers.
The PHRC would like to hear your views on their current services, even if you have never used them before. Your feedback will also help shape their services in the future.
Click this link to take the survey and please feel free to share it with other people you know who are interested in improving health and wellbeing in Leeds.
The survey is live until Monday 17th July.
Training, events and research
Following the high profile incident in football earlier this week, St John’s Ambulance service, Joe Humphries Memorial Trust and the Resuscitation Council UK have developed an online training course for treating sudden cardiac arrest, funded by Sport England.
This accessible 30 – 45 minute course is designed for anyone involved in sport or physical activity from players to coaches to spectators.
Participants will have access to the online materials for 12 months after enrolling, in order to keep their SCA first aid skills updated.
