Guernsey Reciprocal Health Agreements

This temporary health agreement between the two self-managed British Crown Dependencies will only apply for the duration of the air corridor between the two. It also covers medical care and air transfers from the islands to Britain. Grace and David Rihoy, both 78 living in Northamptonshire, visited relatives in Guernsey and ended up paying almost £800 in health insurance for Mrs Rihoy, Mrs Rihoy, who suffers from cancer.

There are 3 general practice partnerships in Guernsey with a series of operations. Visits to family doctors must be paid for by you directly or through the health insurance funds. The partnerships in the field of health are: Healthcare Group Guernsey, Queen`s Road Medical Practice and Island Health. In 2009, the UK terminated the mutual health agreement with the Crown Dependencies.

The States of Guernsey spend more on health and social services than in any other government, reflecting the high level of these services on the island and the value of a healthy life. I`ve told many friends of the boat, and because we`re now “older” but still love to sail, visiting Guernsey is not an attractive option, as there are no mutual health agreements with Britain. People now seem to only use Guernsey as a stopover in Jersey, where there are mutual agreements, or in France, where the EHICC can be used. I know that if we leave the EU, there is no doubt that this system will change, but for now it is a better option than Guernsey. Health workers in Guernsey and the Isle of Man have reached an agreement “in principle” to establish a mutual health agreement between jurisdictions, while the airlift is in operation. . . .
