The National AIDS Trust has released a information sheet on the recent NHS changes regarding HIV treatment for migrants and those of uncertain immigration status.

The National Health Service is free to anyone who is ‘ordinarily resident’. Those who are not ordinarily resident in the UK can be charged for using some NHS services.

However, all sexual health and HIV services are freely available to everyone in England, regardless of their immigration status. This includes testing, seeing a doctor and any medicine you may need for your HIV or other sexually transmitted infection.

The NHS rules explained in this guide relate specifically to the situation in England. However, HIV services should in practice also be free and open to all regardless of immigration status in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Other sexual health services are always free across the UK.
