Overseas Visitors

Any visitor from abroad who is here on holiday, whether or not they have previously been a UK resident, must pay for routine medical care.

They will be given a receipt and the cost is reclaimable on the patient’s travel insurance when they return home.

If treatment is sought for a condition that needs prompt attention and the condition has arisen since arrival in the UK the treatment may be considered as immediately necessary and if the patient is from the European Economic Area, or some others, there is no charge.

If the treatment at a GP surgery or hospital is considered by the healthcare professional to be an emergency then the treatment is free.
