Implementing the overseas visitors hospital charging regulations
The charging Regulations place a legal obligation on NHS Trusts,to find out if overseas visitors normally reside in the UK. If not, then charges may be applicable for the NHS services provided. When that is the case the Trust must charge the person liable (usually the patient) for the costs of the services.
Ultimately the decision to charge for services depends on the Trust providing the treatment. In some cases if a patient’s circumstances are unclear or appear not to be provided for in the Regulations or guidance, Trusts may need to take their own legal advice.
