Hello, I am a Romanian citizen living in UK for almost one

Resolved Question:

Hello,
I am a Romanian citizen living in UK for almost one year now. I registered as a Self Employed, I have the UTR number and NIN and I will have a child next year in May. My question is: am I entitled to free health services to give birth to my child in a public hospital here or do I need to pay? Thank you.

Hi,
Thank you for your question and welcome
If you are entitled to reside in the UK, pay national insurance and tax here, then you are entitled to free health care from NHS.
You contribute to it, so there is absolutely no reason why you cannot benefit from it.
You will need to go and register with GP - and then they will advise you where to obtain pre natal care.
Kind regards
AJ
