Information about individuals who have been denied or charged for NHS treatment is not held by the Home Office.

Individuals affected should contact the Home Office. The new team set up will help the applicants to demonstrate that they are entitled to live in the UK and will aim to resolve cases within two weeks when the evidence has been provided.

The Home Office will also be setting up a new compensation scheme. We will want to take time to consult on the scope of the new scheme.
