Health Care

Medical facilities in Barbados are good for both general and private ward patients. Barbados and UK have reciprocal health agreement and accordingly, the UK nationals (on production of UK passport or NHS medical card, and temporary entry permit) are entitled to free hospital and polyclinic treatment, ambulance travel and prescribed medicines for children and elderly patients. However, prescribed medicines for those other than children or the elderly and all dental treatment must be paid for.

The authorities in Barbados strongly advise full travel insurance for all travellers to the country.
