Description:
The Department of Health and Children (DoHC) has issued guidelines for asylum seeker communicable disease screening in Ireland. This screening is offered on a voluntary basis in reception centres in the Eastern Region and follow-up is provided in some areas throughout the country to which asylum seekers are dispersed. The aim of this study was to evaluate and to do a baseline audit of the screening service provided (in reception centres and on dispersal) to asylum seekers who present to the reception centre clinics in relation to the DoHC guidelines. A number of approaches were taken: • interviews with service providers in the Eastern Region; • a survey of service providers in dispersal locations, in the East and in other areas; • analysis and interpretation of asylum seeker communicable disease screening clinic returns made over a number of years from reception centre clinics to Senior Area Medical Officers and the Director of Public Health; and • follow-up of individual screening records.
