What is the most effective model of primary healthcare to provide for the health needs of asylum seekers

Introduction: Thousands of people fleeing war torn and politically oppressed countries such as Iraq and Zimbabwe come to the United Kingdom every year.  They do so in hope that they will be able to seek asylum here, thus exercising one of their basic human rights.
