Healthcare for PATIENTS who are Overseas Visitors should be reported to the Department for Work and Pensions Overseas Healthcare Team via the Overseas Visitor Treatment Portal.  This enables the Department of Health and ultimately the NHS to be reimbursed for the cost of treatments of Overseas Visitors from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland under European Union regulations.

The OVERSEAS VISITOR STATUS may change while the PATIENT is being treated. All such changes should be recorded so that charges for treatment can be revised accordingly.
