Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 2008

Section 12:  Charges for services provided to persons not ordinarily resident in Northern Ireland

Section 12 provides regulation making powers in relation to health services charges and exemption from charges for persons not ordinarily resident in Northern Ireland. This will allow the Department to consider exemption from charges to overseas visitors on humanitarian grounds. This exemption would be considered if an overseas visitor, who had been granted leave to enter Northern Ireland for a course of treatment, applied for exemption of charges.
