Information for Overseas Visitors seeking hospital treatment at York Teaching Hospital or Scarborough General Hospital
- Are you visiting the United Kingdom?
- Have you been living outside the UK for more than 3 months?
- Did you know that you may have to pay for hospital treatment whilst you are here?
The National Health Service (NHS) provides free hospital treatment for people who live in the United Kingdom. If you are an Overseas Visitor and have been resident in the UK for the last 12 months, you will need to bring your passport and documentation as proof of eligibility for free treatment. Suitable documents include payslips, benefit letters and college attendance letters.
If you are a visitor and not a UK resident you will need to pay before any treatment is given (this excludes the Accident and Emergency department).
