Patients: Foreigners

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of patients treated by the NHS in each year since 2003 were foreign nationals resident in the UK. (156312)

Successive Governments have not required the national health service to provide statistics on the numbers of foreign nationals who are treated by the NHS, including those who are resident in the United Kingdom. It is therefore not possible to provide the information requested.
