Ann Bolstridge,

The Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) held a workshop event to present findings from their research study on migrant health histories. This included interviews with a wide variety of recent migrants (from Poland, China, India, Pakistan, Iran and West African countries), exploring their expectations and experiences of UK health services. The project is a collaboration of researchers at the Primary Care department and the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) at the University of Birmingham. The workshop included:

  • Report on the results of the research and the main emerging issues
  • Discussion of learning points for the provision of health care for migrants
  • Possibilities for further research in this area

They introduced a new European comparative research project at IRiS looking at the ways in which individuals combine formal, informal and virtual health services across public, private and third sectors, a process described as 'welfare bricolage'.
