The Migrant Health Network (MHN) is a successful and effective network of practitioners across health and local government and meets quarterly. The Network has clear objectives to ensure connectivity across the region on migrant health issues, identifying and developing responses to the health needs and impact of migrant communities; ensuring connections between the migrant health agenda and Public Health Outcomes and that these are reflected in commissioning priorities at a local level.[/su_spoiler]
