Change of visa.... what happens to NHS number
« on: September 13, 2020, 11:59:59 PM »
Hello. I was recently given a new job offer. If I take it, I will need to go back to the US to switch my Tier 2 ICT visa to a Tier 2 General visa. If I do that, what happens to my NHS number? Do I need to re-register?

Your NHS number won't change, but you may need to pay a new IHS surcharge with the new visa.

Your NHS number is not related to your visa - it is assigned to you when you register with a GP and is yours for life, so it can never change. It’s simply a way to identify you/your medical records in the NHS computer system.

British citizens born in the UK are assigned their NHS number at birth, while people who move to the UK from another country are issued their NHS number when they first register with a GP.
