UK grants Ukrainian refugees free access to healthcare

The United Kingdom will provide free access to its publicly funded healthcare system to Ukrainian war refugees, the Department of Health and Social Care announced on Thursday.

“It is our moral responsibility to ensure that any Ukrainian arriving in England after being forced out of their home country by the Russian invasion can access the healthcare they may require without fear of financial hardship,” health minister Sajid Javid said in a statement.
