This checklist example was developed by a migrant health lead and registrar at PHE Northwest (Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside, Cumbria and Lancashire). It is intended for use by GPs or those who undertake new patient assessment in primary care.

Detailed information is on the PHE migrant health guide, but this tool was developed because GP’s who were seeing new arrival Syrian refugee families felt that the PHE migrant health guide assessment was too wordy and wanted a checklist to work though.

Hyperlinks are included in the document which links directly back to the PHE migrant health guide.
