  • UESS from abroad and using NHS

    Hello everyone. Me and my family have applied for and obtained SS. We're currently living in Italy and we come back to UK every year for a few days. Having obtained Indefinite Leave to Enter, in the case we need to go to hospital or see a doctor, what we should do? We're not registered with a GP anymore. Thank you in advance.

    Hello,

    There are some NHS services which are free for all, such as emergency hospital treatment (A&E), however, in order to have free non-emergency hospital treatment, including tests, scans, etc. it's necessary to be ordinarily resident here, and that applies to British citizens as well, I know someone who had to pay for an antenatal scan in the hospital where she was born while visiting her family in her hometown, because she had been living abroad with her ex-pat husband, so the same would apply with settled status.
