Not a UK resident, but require hospital treatment?
If you are a legal resident of a country within the European Union, then you will be required to provide upon attending the hospital your current and valid European Health Insurance Card in order to receive treatment, otherwise you will be required to pay for your treatment in advance.
An initial question for you to consider before attending our hospital is whether you have lived within the UK, for the last 12 months and can you provide proof of residency in the form of a relevant and valid VISA and evidence of employment or receipt of benefits.
If this does not apply, then you will be required to pay for your treatment in advance, unless your condition is deemed to be life-threatening
