					HEALTH CARE
FOR VISITORS
TO JERSEY

Advice for visitors travelling to
Jersey from the UK and other
countries.
The Health and Social Services
Department wishes you an
enjoyable and healthy stay,
whether you are visiting for
business or pleasure.

Unfortunately, illness or accidents
can happen at any time and it may
be helpful if you take a little time
to read this leaflet.

All visitors to Jersey are advised to take out full travel
insurance to cover the cost of any medical treatment
they may require and repatriation costs.
Health care in Jersey is provided by the Health and Social
Services Department and is outside the UK National
Health Service. The European Health Insurance Card
(EHIC) is not valid in Jersey.
This means that you will have to pay for most health
services. This includes all medical costs, hospital
accommodation, radiology, pathology, pharmacy
and physiotherapy.
If you are admitted to hospital, a member of staff will
help you complete the necessary forms.
GP visits
All GP visits are provided on a private basis and visitors
will be charged. If you need to see a GP, please telephone
one of the surgeries listed overleaf. If you need a GP in the
evening or weekends, phone any surgery listed overleaf to
make an appointment at the GP Co-op Service.
