Health care for former UK residents now working abroad
Is all health care free for NHS patients?
- No. If you’re treated as an NHS patient, a lot of your health care is free. But you will need to pay for some things – for example, some dental treatment.
- The leaflet ‘A quick guide to help with health costs’ tells you if you can get free treatment or help with health costs. It is available from citizens advice bureaux and Jobcentre Plus offices. You can also find it on the internet.
Can my family get health care from the NHS?
- If you can get NHS care, your husband, wife or civil partner, and any of your children who are in Scotland with you, can get health care from the NHS too. The children must be under 16, or under 19 and in full-time education.
