Medical Assistance

If you need to see a doctor whilst you are in the UK, regardless of you residency status, you can receive treatment in a National Health Service (NHS) facility.  However, visitors to the United Kingdom do not qualify for free treatment under the National Health Service.  To find your nearest facility please refer to the NHS website at www.nhs.uk/.

IN AN EMERGENCY: Dial 999 and ask for an ambulance. The paramedic will give on-the-spot treatment and proceed to the nearest National Health Service hospital suited to treat the emergency.

For non-emergency medical assistance dial 111.

In the United Kingdom, the ER is called Accident and Emergency, or commonly referred to as A&E.  If you do not need an ambulance and can make your own way to the hospital, you should do so.  You can locate your nearest A&E department at www.nhs.uk/Service-Search/Accident-and-emergency-services/LocationSearch/428

Any care beyond emergency treatment received at an NHS facility, will likely incur a fee.  As such, all travelers should have sufficient medical insurance to cover the cost of all medical treatment received while in the United Kingdom.  If you have questions about your bill, please contact the administration office of the individual medical institution.  Alternatively, The Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) may be able to provide general guidance on most aspects of NHS related matters- www.nhs.uk/common-health-questions/nhs-services-and-treatments/what-is-pals-patient-advice-and-liaison-service/.

Non-emergency care is also available from private medical facilities.  If you choose to pursue services on a private basis, you may be seen more expeditiously.  However, private medical fees may be more expensive.  A list of private doctors and dentist is provided below.  Please note that private hospitals in the UK do not have emergency facilities.

Pharmacists in the UK are highly trained and are able to diagnose many ailments, dispense over the counter medications and provide general medical advice.  Most areas will have a late night pharmacy. You can locate your nearest pharmacy via the NHS website at beta.nhs.uk/find-a-pharmacy/.

The U.S. Government assumes no responsibility for payment of medical expenses for private individuals.  In addition, the U.S. Medicare Program does not provide coverage for hospital or medical costs outside of the United States.

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

The information is updated tri-annually. The next update is scheduled for January 2022
