The UK’s hostile environment policies are being increasingly challenged, but within health care, charging regulations in the National Health Service (NHS) remain unchanged, and many migrants continue to fear seeking help when unwell.

This is applied to secondary care and various community services, and even pregnant women and children are charged.
