The Home Office is not able to commission health services for asylum seekers, and we do not fund healthcare.

We work closely with NHS and LA partners to support the health needs of asylum seekers. All asylum seekers have access to NHS services from arrival in the UK. The Home Office and its contractors work closely with the NHS, local authorities and non-governmental organisations to ensure that people can access the health care and support they need.
