Private Healthcare

Even if you are entitled to free NHS treatment in the UK, you can take out private medical insurance if you wish.

An insurance policy which gives you access to private medical care could give you quicker access to treatment with less impact on your studies. You should research the market to identify a suitable private health care provider for your needs.

If you already have medical insurance in your home country, check whether you can extend it to cover your stay in the UK, as well as looking at options available from UK insurers.
