End the NHS surcharge

Boris Johnson


We are in the middle of a pandemic - but that hasn’t stopped this Tory government increasing the NHS surcharge on migrant residents.

From October a charge of £624 is going to be levied alongside all visas, regardless of income.

The Green Party believes the NHS should be funded by tax - according to everyone’s ability to pay and that this charge - which is costly and immoral - amounts to exploitation of migrants.

The exemption for health care staff should apply to all migrants. Scrap the NHS surcharge!

The NHS surcharge must be scrapped and the practice of double charging migrants for the NHS stopped.

During a pandemic it's immoral to increase the cost of healthcare. We'd urge you to rethink your priorities.

The NHS should be funded by a fairer tax system, that has millionaires, billionaires and corporations pay their fair share. Not by double charging migrant workers.
