Very useful but it does not state what 'returning to the UK on a settled basis' consists of.Thanks for posting,

Re: A Little Clarity on Who Pays for NHS Services

It reads to me Pensioners living in Turkey are no longer covered by NHS and will have to pay if they go back to the UK.

Re: A Little Clarity on Who Pays for NHS Services

I'm thinking that if you remain an ordinary resident, that is you still have your main home there and pay council tax and remain registered with a GP, then you are still entirled to free NHS. Unless I have misunderstood.

Re: A Little Clarity on Who Pays for NHS Services

Lie , return , state that you are domiciled with a relative , friend or whatever and insist to the GP that you are back for good.

State that you are living an unsettled lifestyle and doss where you can.

They must treat you alongside the travelers from wherever.

New rules to improve overseas visitors

Make of it what you will.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes to NHS charging regulations will also affect former UK residents.
placeholder

Overseas visitors who need healthcare while in England will soon be charged differently for using the NHS as part of efforts to recoup £500 million a year by 2017 to 2018.

From April, the way the NHS charges these visitors is being changed so that it does not lose out on income from migrants, visitors and former residents of the UK who have left, who should all pay for their care while in the country.

Within the UK, free NHS treatment is provided on the basis of someone being ‘ordinarily resident’. It is not dependent upon nationality, payment of UK taxes, national insurance contributions, being registered with a GP, having an NHS number or owning property in the UK.

The changes which come into effect from April will affect visitors and former UK residents differently, depending on where they now live.

Treatment in A&E departments and at GP surgeries will remain free for all.

People living in an EEA country or Switzerland.
As is the case already, most people, who live or work in another EEA country or Switzerland will continue to get free NHS care using a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued by the country they live in. This means the NHS can reclaim healthcare costs from the original country of residence.

UK state pensioners who live elsewhere in the EEA will now have the same rights to NHS care as people who live in England. This applies to all pensioners who receive a UK state retirement pension and registered for healthcare in Europe with an S1 form.

However, people who live elsewhere in the EEA or Switzerland who are not working and are under the UK retirement age should either use their EHIC if they’re entitled to one, or make sure they have health insurance if they need NHS care when visiting England. Otherwise they will have to pay for their care. This includes former UK residents, and ensures that people who already live and work in the UK do not end up paying through their taxes for visitors who are not economically active.

People living outside the EEA
People who live outside the EEA, including former UK residents, should now make sure they are covered by personal health insurance, unless an exemption applies to them. Anyone who does not have insurance will be charged at 150% of the NHS national tariff for any care they receive.

Exemptions
There are several groups of people who are exempt from charging, or entitled to free care because they remain ordinarily resident here despite spending time outside the UK. UK Crown servants, British Council or Commonwealth War Graves staff, those working in UK government-funded posts overseas, and the spouse/civil partner and children under 18 of these people, are exempt from charging if they were ordinarily resident prior to leaving the UK for that purpose. Those who were not ordinarily resident in the UK before taking up such a post will be charged.

There is also no change for armed forces members, war pensioners and armed forces compensation scheme recipients and their families, who are not required to have formerly been an ordinary resident of the UK.

Returning to the UK to settle
Citizens who return to the UK on a settled basis will be classed as ordinarily resident, and will be eligible for free NHS care immediately.

Re: A Little Clarity on Who Pays for NHS Services

Or accept that you actually do live in Turkey and arent a UK resident anymore, stay in Turkey, see a surgeon the same day, have an operation the day after and dont get put on an indefinite waiting list in the UK where hopefully you dont die waiting.

If I have to pay it certainly will not be the NHS that I go to for treatment.

I always thought that if you are living out of the UK for more than 6 months then you were not entitled to NHS care on return. ?
