Policy Briefings: Health and Social Care


Health and social care / immigration

As of 3 March 2015, new regulations on access to health care for migrants - Provision of Health Services to Persons not Ordinarily Resident Regulations 2015- are in place in Northern Ireland. This briefing provides a summary of the contents of the new legislation. The regulations themselves are detailed and assessing a person’s entitlement to healthcare can be fairly complicated. If in doubt about a person's entitlement, it is recommended to seek advice.



Community care / mental health / health and social care

The Mental Capacity Bill was issued for public consultation on 27 May 2014 and the consultation ends on 2 September. The Bill fuses mental health and mental capacity law into a single piece of legislation. 

The aim of this briefing is to foster a greater level of understanding of the complexities of the draft legislation amongst the wide number of stakeholders with a keen and practical interest in the Bill.



Community care / immigration

In the absence of pulished regional immigration data, we seek to calculate the number of refused asylum seekers living in Northern Ireland.
