Dear London Strategic Health Authority,
I was hoping you could provide me with inforamtion regarding the health and healthcare services of refugees in London?
a.) Any information on how many refugees use London's healthcare services.
b.) Any information of the breakdowns on age and ethnicities of the refugees using these services.
c.) Any information on the services that are and are not available to refugees in London specifically.
On the information requested above, is there a way to get this data as London as a whole and by the breakdown of how they are distributed through the London boroughs?
Thanks for your help.
Thank you for your email.
