Health care

There is a reciprocal health agreement with the United Kingdom. However, health care is not normally free and health insurance is advisable. Local Health Boards set up consultations with doctors and dentists. Proof of residence in the UK is required, for example an NHS medical card or a driving licence, to take advantage of the agreement.

Tourists should make it clear before treatment that they wish to be treated under the EU’s social security regulations as it may be necessary to complete a statement to this effect.

Visitors from other EU and EEA member states are entitled to emergency medical treatment without charge, provided they present form E111, which should be obtained before departure.
