NHS Entitlements for migrants in England

Public Health England has published new videos on NHS entitlements for migrants in England.

You can also find advice and guidance for healthcare practitioners on the health needs of migrant patients and assessing new patients from overseas.

What is the guidance about?

The guidance explains to new patients how the NHS operates and how it compares to the healthcare system that they've been used to.

Migrants may not be aware that they are still entitled to receive the free COVID-19 vaccination without having an NHS number or being registered with a GP. 

The aim is also to increase the awareness of entitlements to NHS and vaccination services among healthcare professionals who support migrants in their practices.
