Health

The Guernsey Social Security Department runs a specialist health insurance scheme, which covers the cost of specialist medical care by the Medical Specialist Group, ophthalmic services provided by the Ophthalmic Group and inpatient physiotherapy. New residents do not become eligible to receive benefits under this scheme until they have been resident for 13 weeks.  Outside of this scheme, residents are responsible for meeting the cost of treatment for their GPs, chiropodist, physiotherapist, optician and dentist. No charges are made to patients for hospital accommodation, nursing services or drug prescription while in hospital unless the patient chooses to be treated privately and undertakes to pay fees.
