Information for refugees from Ukraine
The situation in Ukraine remains at the forefront of all our minds and the NHS is starting to welcome citizens from Ukraine to Norfolk and Waveney, including refugees.
All Ukrainians arriving in England will be able to access NHS healthcare free of charge, including GP and nurse consultations, hospital services, and urgent care centres. Ukrainians coming to the UK will also be offered COVID-19 vaccines and medical screenings.
Healthwatch Norfolk has produced a page of useful information and resources about the NHS and how to access health care services which have been translated into Ukrainian. This can be found here.
Further information about vaccines, registering with a GP and what to do if you or someone you are caring for is ill can be found on the GOV.uk website: A leaflet is available in Ukrainian here and in English here.
If struggling with accessing a vaccination site, particularly in a rural area, the Jab Cab can be used for free transport to and from a booked COVID-19 vaccination appointment across Norfolk & Waveney - Grab a jab with the Jab Cab - Norfolk and Waveney CCG.
