government response details
Health and care workers from all over the world are playing a crucial role in the UK’s efforts to tackle coronavirus and save lives, and we are immensely grateful for all they are doing. The Prime Minister has asked the Home Secretary and the Department of Health and Social Care to work together to exempt NHS and care staff from the immigration health surcharge. This means the Immigration Health Surcharge will not be increased for this group of workers but will instead be removed.The Home Office and Department of Health and Social Care are working through how to implement this change and full details will be announced in due course.The overall purpose of the surcharge is to benefit the NHS, help to care for the sick and save lives. NHS, wider health and social care workers from abroad who are granted visas are doing this already through the fantastic contribution they make.Home Office
