The overall purpose of the Surcharge is to benefit the NHS, help to care for the sick and save lives.

NHS and wider health and social care workers from abroad make a fantastic contribution. However, it is fair to expect people arriving in the UK to work in non-healthcare roles to make a contribution to the brilliant NHS services to which they can access.
