Will the government fund any type of healthcare for UK residents in the EU?
The UK government has announced a temporary scheme that will cover travel in the EEA or Switzerland between 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021. This is to support individuals undertaking routine treatment needs such as regular dialysis, oxygen therapy and chemotherapy. This is not a replacement for the EHIC, it is limited in scope.
Individuals will need to work with their NHS clinician to agree their treatment. More information is expected to follow from the government on how to apply.
