Health Services: Public Consultation

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he plans to launch the public consultation on access to healthcare for foreign nationals. (251645)

The Department and Home Office are jointly reviewing the rules on access of foreign nationals to national health service medical services. This review is ongoing and no decisions have yet been made on the very complex and inter-connecting issues under consideration. A public consultation will take place once the review is complete, giving everyone an opportunity to comment on the proposals.
