Visiting From Overseas?
The NHS is not free, it is paid for by UK tax payers; your eligibility for free healthcare will depend upon several factors.
Treatment in an emergency is free for all but on-going care for pre-existing conditions may be subject to a charge for those visitors whom are not-entitled.
Most EU citizens can obtain free health care provided that they can show an EU passport and a EU Health Insurance Card
British Passport holders who live abroad are not automatically entitled to free care. The rules are complex.
Details for holiday makers are available here
Details for workers, or British Citizens resident abroad are here
Any charge that we make may be covered by your Travel insurance. Currently, our charges for non-entitled patients are:
Private Consultation: £25
Private Prescription: £15
Any medication that the Pharmacy dispenses will attract a separate charge, in addition to the charge for the GP producing your prescription.
