Diphtheria clinics

Urgent screenings

The ABC RASS Team sees newly arrived asylum seekers, to both assess their urgent health needs and also to screen and offer protection against diphtheria infection. As part of our service, we screen and test new arrivals for diphtheria and are able to treat any cases. 

We also offer a course of preventative antibiotics for all new arrivals, in-keeping with current Public Health guidance. Vaccinations against diphtheria are also given by the Alliance for Better Care team in our Sussex hotels.
