Asylum seekers only please
A medical centre exclusively for asylum seekers and refugees has been set up in Birmingham.
The move comes after Dr Vijayakar Abrol, a GP in the city, placed a sign in his surgery window saying 'No asylum seekers please' in pro-test at the lack of facilities for refugees.
The Asylum Seeker and Refugee Centre for Health has opened at the Broadway Health Centre in Ladywood near Dr Abrol's surgery.
Meanwhile, Derby PCT is to reopen a surgery that was closed last October, as a dedicated PMS practice for asylum seekers. Up to 40 patients who arrive each week will be assigned to the Sai medical practice from the end of February.
