In October 2017 the NHS underwent a fundamental shift in the way it provides care – for the first time since the NHS was founded, Trusts are required to charge patients upfront for treatment.
This event will explore the impact of NHS charging regulations on migrants and the role healthcare workers have in improving access to care for all, both in advocating for patients facing increasing barriers to care, and in protecting the universal principles that underpin the NHS. Medact and Docs Not Cops will launch their Patients Not Passports Toolkit and Briefing: a toolkit to understand the detail of new charging policy, and detail the many ways healthcare workers can advocate for patients.
Event hosted by the Institute of Global Health, Medact, Docs Not Cops, Health Professionals for Global Health.
