NHS services are provided free of charge to people who are deemed to be "ordinarily resident".

Ordinary residence is defined a when a person is:

Living lawfully in the United Kingdom voluntarily and for settled purposes, as part of the regular order of their life, for the time being

In order to ascertain a person's eligibility, the Trust applies baseline questions to all patients. This include, but are not exclusive to,

  • "Where have you lived in the last 12 months?"
  • "Can you provide evidence to show where you live?"

Anybody who can demonstrate that they lawfully reside in the UK is unlikely to incur treatment charges.
