Hi,

Does any one have, or can direct me to an easily understood list of which overseas visitors get charged for consultations & medication. We find that this is a nightmare every summer and also feel that there lacks a consistency within the practice. We know that if they are working in this country & have a NI card then they are entitled. I know of one practice that does not charge because of the confusion & readin The Scottish Exec, guidelines does not make it any clearer!

Thanks in anticipation

Hi Ailie

Try the link below. It's a little clearer than some of the documents I've read. This is still a hugely grey area and one of our colleagues has written to the Right Hon. Gordon Brown:confused: for some clearer clarification on the matter. I will post the reply if we ever get one!!

Hope this helps in the meantime.
