Patients from abroad
If you are visiting from another country and need urgent medical attention we will treat you under the NHS system for a period of up to two weeks.
Please note that hospital care or other community care may incur a charge, depending on your country of residence.
Further information on who is eligible for NHS treatment and what charges might apply is available via NHS Choices
If you are moving abroad on a permanent basis, you will no longer be entitled to medical treatment under normal NHS rules. This is because the NHS is a residence-based healthcare system. Please notify us so that you and your family can be removed from the NHS register.
Most people will no longer be entitled to use your UK-issued European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to access healthcare abroad.
More information can be found on the NHS Choices website
