Medical treatment under the NHS is not free at the point of delivery for everyone in the country. NHS treatment is considered free at the point of delivery for all those who are considered to be ‘ordinarily residing’ in the UK.
Who is not eligible for NHS treatment?
Those visiting the UK and are citizens from outside of the EU, Norway, Lichtenstein, Switzerland and Iceland are not eligible for free treatment under the NHS. In addition those UK citizens who are not resident in the UK and have been in the country for less than six months are also not eligible for free treatment under the NHS. International visitors, tourists and international students are therefore not eligible for free treatment under the NHS and in that case need to ensure they are covered for their medical needs.
What about emergency care?
Treatment administered by the emergency department in NHS hospitals is free for all. However if treatment results in admission to hospital, patients will be charged for all further treatment that is needed.
