Unlike in the UK, Guernsey does not have a free national health service and the island has no reciprocal health agreement with the UK, so it is advised that prospective residents consider taking out health insurance.

Guernsey has excellent healthcare on-island, with highly qualified specialists in all main areas. The island has numerous medical centres and GP surgeries and its main hospital is The Princess Elizabeth Hospital (PEH).

Guernsey’s health system is different from the UK’s in that it does not have the National Health Service. GP practices are private, although subsidised by your Social Security payments.  Secondary or specialist care is delivered through the Medical Specialist Group and is free via referral.

The local healthcare system also links to the NHS in the UK for specific specialist or emergency care needs
