I was lost - refugee and asylum seekers health course

God calls us to care for the stranger in our midst; to protect orphans and widows; to 'act justly and love mercy' (Micah 6:8). How does this translate to the way we care in 21st century Britain?

Over the past 20 years refugees numbering hundreds of thousands have come to the UK, with many seeking asylum. As ongoing threat of violence and political instability in the Middle East (and beyond) continues, how can Christian nurses, doctors and other agencies rise to the challenge of meeting their physical and spiritual needs?

This one-day course offers an introduction to the key health, system, and spiritual problems faced by refugees and asylum seekers. The aim of the day is to equip Christian healthcare practitioners and others to respond to:

  • common presentations encountered in daily practice within a UK health setting
  • broader support needs within the community

The programme is practical and interactive, led by doctors, nurses and others working in this field.

The afternoon sessions are particularly relevant to a wider audience than healthcare professionals.
