HC Deb 17 September 2003 vol 410 c852W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was spent on treatment on the NHS for overseas visitors who are fully or partially exempt from the National Health Service (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 1989, in each of the last five years. [128702]

Mr. Hutton

[holding answer 15 September 2003]: This information is not available centrally. Once it has been established that an overseas visitor is exempt from charges, they are dealt with in the same way as any other patient and national health service trusts are not required to keep a separate record of the cost of their treatment.
