Overview: Patients resident in European Economic Area countries and Switzerland: These patients are required to show a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC). The clinic reception or ward clerk must record the following details from the card and pass this to the Overseas Patients Office.
  • Patients full name
  • Date of Birth
  • Type of entitling document (EHIC or PRC)
  • Country Issuing Entitlement
  • Personal identification number
  • Indentification number of institution
  • Card Number
  • Expiry date
Unless the patient can produce these documents they will be liable for the cost of their treatment and they must be advised accordingly. In these cases where possible the Overseas Patients Office should be advised before treatment commences so that payment can be obtained in advance.
