On 21 May, the Prime Minister announced that NHS and health and care staff would be exempt from the Immigration Health Surcharge. Officials in the Home Office and the Department of Health and Social Care are working through how to implement this change.

NHS, health and care workers who have paid the Surcharge since the announcement will be refunded. Arrangements are currently being worked out and more details will be announced in due course.
