    we found out she was pregnant but unfortunately she has miscarried. we got a letter from the local NHS hospital and it looks like we will have to pay for her treatment is this correct? visa type spouse no recourse to public funds.

    What type of visa did she have at the time of treatment?

    We never paid for treatment as my wife were pregnant and our visa was a settlement visa which we got from Thailand and used to gain entry to the UK. On that visa was Spouse of (my name) and also No recourse to public funds.

    On our return to the UK i had to register my wife at the local GP and they photocopied her passport.

    Not long after my wife recieved her medical card

    I would have thought Spouse/Settlement are the same thing unless someone can correct me.

    In that case Gasman01 your wife should receive free NHS treatment. Use the contact details on their letter and advise them that your wife is resident here on a settlement visa.

    As the others have said Gasman don,t worry.
    No recourse to public funds doesn,t include NHS treatment;your wife is perfectly entitled to it.
    BTW I,m sorry to hear about your wifes miscarriage + its pretty insensitive to get a letter asking for payment too!

    Agreed and yes on a Spouse visa NHS is ok its the other Benefits she will not get (Like me as me as an employed homeowner paying tax on everything )
