Reciprocal Health Agreement (United Kingdom and Jersey)

Volume 526: debated on Friday 1 April 2011

Following discussions between the Department of Health, the States of Jersey Government and the devolved Administrations, a new reciprocal health agreement between the United Kingdom and Jersey will come into effect from 1 April 2011.

The new agreement will ensure that UK residents visiting Jersey will receive free, state-provided immediately necessary treatment while on a temporary visit to Jersey, as will Jersey residents visiting the UK. No public money will change hands under the agreement, which is a common feature of all of the United Kingdom’s non-European economic area reciprocal health arrangements

The new agreement will provide certainty for travellers and represents a mutually beneficial agreement for both the United Kingdom and Jersey.
