Department of Health - EHIC

Every year, residents of the United Kingdom go on more than 59 million overseas journeys. Travel across the world is now so common that it is easy to forget the health risks which can be involved and the fact that very few countries offer such easy access to medical facilities as Britain. This area of the website contains advice for travellers about planning ahead, staying healthy and getting treatment elsewhere in the world. Also in this area is information about the EHIC, UK citizens’ passport to free or reduced-cost emergency care in most other European countries.
