|Factsheet on NHS charges for migrants with no recourse to public funds|
This factsheet summarises what NHS healthcare migrants with NRPF can access in England, whether this will be chargeable, and the new Immigration Health Charge.
For full details please refer to the legislation that is referenced and the Department of Health’s Guidance on operating the overseas visitors charging regulations (March 2015).
Healthcare is a devolved matter and so different charging exemptions apply in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, although the Immigration Health Charge still applies to migrants who are intending to reside in those parts of the UK.
NHS treatment is not a ‘public fund’ for immigration purposes, so migrants subject to the ‘no recourse to public funds condition’ are not prohibited from accessing NHS services.
