DT 1824 Entitlement to NHS Health Care and Charging: Representing Migrant Clients in the Hostile Environment

Wednesday 07 Aug 2019, 16:00, London
Tutors: Kamla Adiseshiah, Southwark Law Centre, Christine Benson, Maternity Action and Shu Shin Luh, Garden Court Chambers

This is an emerging area of casework and legal challenge.  Migrants face charges of thousands of pounds for essential treatment and the Home Office has a discretion to refuse immigration applications if an applicant has an NHS debt of £500, outstanding for 2 months.  Immigration practitioners and other frontline support and advice workers can help people challenge decisions on charging status, negotiate repayment plans, request waivers and make complaints to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman and the Information Commissioner.  Solicitors and barristers can challenge charging by way of Judicial Review.
