RESPOND is a new rapid access, community-based screening and care planning service for all asylum-seeker families registered with a GP in Camden.
The service is designed for adults and children of asylum-seeking families living in Camden in temporary Home Office-funded accommodations. Families will be screened for:
- Physical health concerns including infectious diseases
- Mental and emotional health difficulties
- Child development and behavioural concerns
- Oral health needs
- Sexual and reproductive health including need for access to antenatal care
If you would like to make a donation to help asylum seekers with the cost of getting public transport to health appointments or to help us supply items such as nappies to families with babies you can visit the the UCLH Charity website and choose the 'Respond' fund in the drop down menu.
Currently, this service is being delivered at Prince of Wales GP centre and it will be soon launched at James Wigg GP centre. Exact location details are listed below:
