Health care for overseas visitors

We have produced information about overseas visitors' health rights. The factsheets tell workers, students, asylum seekers and refugees, former residents, UK passport holders, pensioners living abroad and holidaymakers from overseas about the NHS services they can expect to receive in Scotland.

In this section, you will find the full text for the factsheets. You can also download a pdf copy or get the information in a number of formats:

    About this information 

    We have tried our best to make sure the information in this leaflet is correct. However, the leaflet is for guidance only so you should not rely on it as a full statement of the law. If you are thinking about taking legal action, you should contact a solicitor, a citizens advice bureau, the Patient Advice & Support Service or other advice agency.

    Produced by NHS inform.
