The UK is the European country with the highest number of applications for asylum. Notwithstanding the efforts made by government to amend and restrict eligibility criteria of admission, both to avoid abuse and to reduce the number of new admissions, figures have increased steadily since 1999. The level of benefits and support is all but pleasant. Housing has been restricted and they can’t work to improve their material conditions. Beside, although entitled to a full and free access to the NHS, managerial, linguistic and cultural barriers make difficult to meet their more elementary needs. There is general concern that measures implemented in the last few years by the government will leave many in need without minimal essential coverage. This may be a serious threat for their health but also, indirectly, for the communities they live in.
