Health Care

Inevitably Canadians fall ill or are involved in accidents and require medical assistance, while travelling outside Canada. Canadian consular officials in London are able to provide guidance and assistance specific to the circumstances.

There is no reciprocal agreement on healthcare between the UK and Canada.  In order to avoid the possibility of incurring expensive medical bills, it is therefore essential that you take comprehensive travel insurance prior to your visit to the UK.  Any medical costs will need to be recovered through your travel insurance.  A very small proportion of the expenses may possibly be recoverable through your provincial health plan.

In an Emergency dial 999 for an ambulance.
