The Department of Health and Social Care works with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the UK Health Security Agency, and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, to provide health system support to all Overseas Territories, including Montserrat. This includes practical and technical support to supply COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics and antivirals, medical equipment, and support on workforce recruitment and retention. We also administer the NHS Quota System which allows Montserrat to refer ten patients for a free course of NHS treatment not available on island.
