As already mentioned it was the UK goblement that ended the reciprocal health care agreement, not the Channel Islands.
The local doctors, nurses and radiologists will NOT TURN YOU AWAY. But yes, you (or your travel insurance company) may be given a bill.
Civilization is safe and well. Now, onto EU Treaties?
SO,is everyone agreed. you DO now need travel insurance[whoever instigated the changes]
health cover if you travel to the Channel Islands? As I already said, as was reported.. Accident and emergencey admissions are not effected.It would come as a shock to most people I think, if they were unlucky enough to need non emergencey treatment while in the Channell Islands,to then be told it was they,that had to stump up!Usefull information to prospective travellers I would have thaught!
Civilisation being safe!?.. HAS IT EVER BEEN? Plenty have paid a dear price to keep US safe!
