NHS Treatment: Foreign Nationals

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 25 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) foreign nationals and (b) other EU citizens were treated on the NHS in the latest year for which figures are available; and what the cost was to the NHS in that year. (115521)

It is not possible to provide the information requested. Successive Governments have not required the NHS to provide statistics on the number of foreign nationals seen, treated or charged under the provisions of the NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 1989, as amended, nor any costs involved.
