Yes I think there was...this is probably whats been at the back of my mind! I'll remind him to go and speak with an insurance broker to see what sort of price we are looking at! Well, whenever he comes back from coffee lol
Sounds like a good plan Jess. :)

It kind of makes sense I suppose but then why should some things be free and others not? :confused:

Some other bits are free too, A&E and walk in centres are free, but inpatient/outpatient services aren't............. but when did anyone ever ask for proof of ID or if you're only visiting the country ??

I don't know where I read it (don't think it was on here) but it said after receiving treatment in A&E for example you would have to pay but like you said, they never do ask. But it would be my luck they would ask my hubby lol

they can still get NHS treatment....yeah it does say they might have to pay, but my M has never had to pay for anything:)
the rules have changed, people were not being charged but should have been and now they will be!
if they are not entitled to NHS treatment

That's what I figured lol Just wondered if anyone has got insurance before and could recommend anywhere to get it from or give me an example price as I figure it will be expensive! :)

And so they should be! If it was ensured that people paid in the first place there wouldn't be the need for any changes

We got an annual insurance for worldwide cover underwritten by a French insurance company, I can`t remember the exact cost but around 200 dinar per person. Just check the length of stay allowed per journey though.

so how comes my husband got a NHS card for free prescriptions the same as me bc i get WTC????
WTC know he is not entitled to funds.
he does pay NI so why cant he get help?????
he is registered with GP and has never had to pay for services like blood test, chest xray etc.
this is confusing........:confused:

Lynne I believe your hubby is on settlement visa and those on this visa can get nhs treatment etc. it's those on visitors that aren't entitled. X
