Abstract

The incidence of common mental health conditions and wellbeing concerns increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.1 A shift to remote access and consulting within general practice has led to fears that quality of care has decreased for many groups, particularly for migrant communities.2 Numbering over 2 million, people from Central and Eastern Europe (including Poland, Romania, Lithuania, Ukraine, Bulgaria, and other countries) constitute one of the largest foreign-born communities across the UK.3 Despite this, their health needs receive relatively little attention from the media or policymakers.
