Asylum Seeker and Refugee Specialist Nursing Service

Our service provides specialist nursing support with a particular focus on assessing the immediate and future health needs of asylum seekers and refugees who settle in Bolton via the Home Office UK Border Agency Gateway Protection Programme. We run a TB screening service, and an outreach service is available to assist patients in accessing health and social care, with the aim to improve their health.


The primary aim of the service is to improve the health of people who settle in Bolton by providing appropriate and fair access to healthcare.
