Planning your healthcare abroad

If you're moving abroad on a permanent basis, you'll no longer automatically be entitled to medical treatment under normal NHS rules. This is because the NHS is a residence-based healthcare system.

You'll have to notify your GP practice so you and your family can be removed from the NHS register.



Perhaos a drive to Barnard Castle would help?
Since when was the NHS a legal site?

Normally you would quote Prof Dougan or David Greene from the law society, you need to doo better

I've lost count of the number of Expats who's answer to everything when faced with the prospect of being caught out on
everything from tax declarations to foreign earnings and overstaying their residence is 'who's to know ? and who's going
to tell them ?'

It is the legal requirement.

And not doing so is costing the NHS millions- but keeping your GP happy as s/he keeps getting the yearly fee for having you as a patient- for doing, nothing. As GPs only take a certain number of patients on, then close the books- anyone who remains on GPs list not only costs the NHS, but also takes the place of someone local who cannot find a GP.

I remember our last visit to GP before we left. She had been my OH's GP Trainee for 3 years, and he had written several references for her in the past. she said, I'd love to keep you two on the books, but as you know that would be illegal, I hope you understand. To which OH replied that of course, that was the legal requirement and totally understood.
I've lived in 4 or 5 cities in the uk and don't think I ever deregistered. .I presume they defroster you when you register somewhere we?

Re: UK hits 15,000,000 vaccination target

If you registered with another practice, they would have got your details and deregistered you from previous practice/Doctor, and got your previous medical notes too. They will always ask for NHS card and previous Doctor. So no issue. When you move abroad, it is a different matter.

Re: UK hits 15,000,000 vaccination target

UK now hits 873,000 vaccines... per day!

Seems like the UK is keen on continuing to maintain the daily vaccination rate on par with Switzerland's total vaccination numbers since December...


Also, found this quite funny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaMlNjzgj2E

Obviously as ever correlation doesn't equal causation but it seems things are going in the right direction in the UK (finally) after a lot of early f uck ups.

Re: UK hits 15,000,000 vaccination target

Johnson announces new regulations which are causing quite a stir. £5000 fine if you go on holiday abroad ...

unless you own a second home abroad. This 'we are all in this together' is beginning to sound very hollow- especially as his dad Stanley, flew to Greece to his second home in the middle of the Summer last year without any sanctions.

Wonder if those of us with second homes in the UK will be allowed to go?

I agree with you. And I think that some of it is thanks to not being in the EU, or already fairly independent.

All countries, incl. WHO have done a lot of early f uck ups. Except maybe Israel, Iceland, and some areas in Asia, if I remember well. The UK has been on the right track for a while, it shows in the CV numbers.

I don't see an exemption for 2nd home owners.

"The new rules will also mean protests will be considered a permitted exception to the ban on mass gatherings"

Re: UK hits 15,000,000 vaccination target

''People will be allowed to leave the UK to prepare a second home for sale or rent, according to new coronavirus regulations coming into force later this month.

The latest restrictions, which will apply from 29 March, will include a list of specific “reasonable excuses to travel” outside the country, including what Labour branded as “the Stanley Johnson clause”.

Boris Johnson’s father, Stanley, last summer apparently breached Covid guidelines by travelling to his Greek villa to make it “Covid-proof”.

The exemption allows people to travel abroad “in connection with the purchase, sale, letting or rental of a residential property”. Those activities include visiting an estate agent, developer sales office or show home, viewing residential properties to rent or buy, and preparing a property for moving in.''

no problem with comprehending that anyone with a second home can say they are preparing it for sale- just go and do a bit of gardening, repaint a wall or two - and then say you changed your mind. Exactly what Stanley did last Summer without any sanctions at all.

Re: UK hits 15,000,000 vaccination target

Theyre a lot stricter checking now leaving though at least based on last Sunday where everyone checking in was being asked to show their leave form.

Obviously people can still lie on there hence the 5k potential fine to try and prevent bullsh*tters.

Re: UK hits 15,000,000 vaccination target

... yes, and the point being, that second home owners are exempt, hence the complaints that there is one rule for the majority, and another for the most affluent minority. Quite simple really.

2nd home owners are not exempt, the rules are the same for them.

With a 10-day isolation, and a shed-load of tests...

1: test before leaving CH
2: test 2 days after arriving
3: test 8 days after arriving
4: test before leaving UK

Then a quarantine in CH (as for some unfathomable reason, the UK is still on the red-list, despite there being less cases than here, and the UK strain already being here).

At 100-150 pounds a pop, the tests alone will add 600-pounds to the travel costs...

I have a house being renovated in the UK to be rented, but haven't been able to check on the workers in ages. Really hoping that the alleged new rules from the 29th are real!
