Help for NHS to recover costs of care from visitors and migrants

Documents include template letters, posters and guidance to help NHS trusts manage overseas visitors and migrant charging.


The guidance for NHS staff working in primary care in England providing healthcare for overseas visitors from the European Economic Area (EEA) explains how the cost can be reclaimed from their country of residence and what primary care staff can do to support hospitals in recovering costs from these visitors.

These documents have been developed with and tested by overseas visitor managers to help the NHS recover the costs of healthcare from visitors and migrants.

The documents available will continue to grow and adapt to provider and patient needs.
