The Department has not made a formal assessment of the adequacy of access to European Union dialysis services for people travelling abroad after the United Kingdom has left the EU. However, we engage regularly with our partners in the National Health Service and industry on this matter.
We understand the importance of maintaining reciprocal healthcare arrangements for people with chronic conditions. This is why we have been clear we want to continue participation in the European Health Insurance Card scheme, subject to a reciprocal deal with the EU. We will return to the rights of people not in scope by the end of the implementation period in future talks.
