Abstract: PAFRAS Briefing Paper 11 focuses on the provision of medical assistance available for refused asylum seekers. The level of medical care that refused asylum seekers are able to access has, for some years, been a source of contention. The present government has made clear that, where possible, access to medical support will be denied and the result has been ongoing; appearing before the courts on numerous occasions. At the same time, issues around access to medical support have caused debate, and in many cases protest, within the medical profession itself with many individuals calling for improved healthcare services.
