Catto and Gorman (2010) The impact of recent Central and Eastern European migration on the Scottish health service: A study of newspaper coverage 2004–2008 Catto and Gorman (2010) analyse Scottish newspapers’ reporting of the impact of Central and Eastern European migration on NHS Scotland. The authors find a curious pattern. At first migrants were presented as a threat in media reports. Subsequently, a more reassuring presentation followed. In addition to the change in presentation the authors identify an increasing frequency of media reports relating to migration over the time period that the analysis was conducted. The study offers an interesting examination of media presentation in a climate of increased interest in the impact of migration post-EU enlargement. For studies which focus on migration and healthcare see for example Crawford et al. (2012) which focuses on Glasgow; George et al. (2011) which examines the financial impact of the provision of healthcare, and Kearns and Whitley (2010) which examines the health, Wellbeing and social inclusion of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in comparison to other residents of Glasgow.

McCollum and Findlay (2011) Employer and labour provider perspectives on Eastern European migration to the UK McCollum and Findlay (2011) examine how the role played by East European migrants in the UK labour market has altered over time. The study examines UK employers’ motivations for employing migrants from Eastern Europe and associated migration channels. In so doing, the study demonstrates the prominent role played by Eastern European migrants in the labour market. Findings show how the perspectives of those who recruit and employ Eastern European migrants are linked to the production and representation of the region’s migratory flows to the UK. Also see Jack (2009) for a study which investigates the impact Eastern European migrant workers have had on the Scottish tourism industry, Tindal et al. (2014b) for a study of immigration policy and constitutional change from the perspective of Scottish employers and industry and Danson and Jentsch (2009) for analysis of the rural labour market and the value that employers place on migrant labour.

McCollum et al. (2012) Spatial, sectoral and temporal trends in A8 migration;to the UK 2004-2011. Evidence from the worker registration scheme This report by McCollum et al. (2012) presents analysis of Worker Registration Scheme (WRS) data to illuminate migration flow trends. The WRS scheme did not require all migrants to register on the scheme (unemployed and self-employed migrants not having to register, those who did so often failed to re-register following a change in employment). Nonetheless, the data set remains a principal source for the temporal analysis of A8 migrants in the labour market at both local and national levels. The study confirms that agricultural and hospitality sectors are key areas for migrant labour. This is the case both in Scotland and across the UK. Though, as A8 migrants to Scotland are less likely to gain employment through recruitment agencies, the authors suggest that direct employment is more common in Scotland. The findings and detailed analysis in this report, clearly contribute to a greater understanding of migration patterns and required responses at both local and national government levels.
