While there is a broad consensus that barriers to access in the utilisation of healthcare exist for immigrants in the US, European evidence exploring this issue paints a mixed picture, with studies from a variety of European jurisdictions presenting different conclusions. In this context, Ireland, a European country with substantial private involvement in healthcare delivery, and, a largely young immigrant population, provides an opportunity to investigate the healthcare utilisation of immigrants compared to natives in a European country with mixed private-public healthcare provision.
