Healthcare in London

►Buy the Expat Guide to London in PDF format


Expats living in London qualify to receive free emergency treatment at all National Health Service (NHS) hospitals, though in-patient treatment and dental work might cost a foreigner, depending on their nationality.
Reciprocal healthcare agreements with a range of foreign countries mean that citizens of certain countries are exempt from healthcare payments. These countries include members of the EU, Australia and New Zealand.

Once expats have arrived in London they should make it a priority to register for an NHS number; this documentation offers patients access to the NHS system.

Below are a list of some of the main public and private hospitals in London.
