Section 39: Related provision: charges for health services

187.Persons who are ordinarily resident in the UK are not chargeable for health services under the legislation specified in section 39(2). Section 39 states that for the purpose of the charging provisions those who require leave to enter or remain and do not have it and those who have limited leave to enter or remain are not to be treated as ordinarily resident, so ensuring they can potentially be charged for health services throughout the UK.

188.Subsection (2) sets out the specific health service charging provisions in each of the constituent parts of the UK in respect of which the definition of not ordinarily resident in subsection (1) applies.
