Practice Note 66. The health of unaccompanied asylum-seeking and other separated children


Buy now

This Practice Note considers what needs to be done to address the health of unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children being looked after in the UK – the legislation, common health issues (including age assessment), and how best to undertake a health assessment. This material was originally published as a chapter in the anthology Promoting the Health of Children in Public Care, but has been revised and updated.
