Andrew Bridgen questions the Government about advance charging for non-emergency NHS treatment for overseas patients

4th July 2017

Andrew Bridgen questions the Government about the financial contribution resulting from advance charging for non-emergency treatment for overseas patients using the NHS.

Funding our national health service to meet the needs of UK residents is one proposition; funding an international health service open to the world is another proposition entirely. Are there any indications that advance charging for non-emergency treatment for overseas patients is putting more money into our NHS?

My hon. Friend is a doughty campaigner for ensuring that non-resident visitors to this country contribute for healthcare received here. We put in place a number of measures to enhance the appropriate charging structures and increased the funding received by the NHS from £89 million to £289 million in 2015-16. We expect similar action to result in a further increase.
