EHIC Health Card - Urgent Information.
Our President, Phil Mercer, has asked me to send this important piece of information to you. It may also be useful to have a look at the CSF Forum (https://forum.cancersupportfrance.org) where there is more information about Brexit.
DO YOU HAVE A UK ISSUED EHIC FORM? IF SO, PLEASE READ THIS ...
Under new NHSBSA guidelines that have just come out, you need to renew your UK issued EHIC-E, as your current card can only be used up to 31 December 2020. This is good news, I think, as the new EHICs will no doubt verify that you have continued rights to use them under the WA.
You can make your application online - if you currently have a UK issued S1 it's a very quick and straightforward process. you need to tick the box that says you have an S1, give your name, your address, your date of birth, a phone number (optional) and your email address. You'll get an acknowledgement that you've completed your application, and an application number. You will receive an email acknowledging your application and then - presumably - your new EHIC-E.
Here's the link - just follow the simple instructions.
It will take you quite literally 2 minutes.
(This only applies to UK issued EHICs - if you have a CEAM issued by France it doesn't apply to you).
Please share this important information as widely as you can. Thanks!
