This report investigates the degree to which NHS Trusts in England are complying with the regulations and guidance governing the NHS Migrant and Visitor Cost Recovery Programme (‘the NHS charging programme’).

The research finds worrying failings in the administration of the NHS charging programme, leaving vulnerable women anxious and fearful about debts they cannot pay and deterring them from attending for care. It details how the implementation of the programme within NHS Trusts poses a significant risk to migrant women’s health and wellbeing.
