Question for written answer E-000304-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Julie Girling (ECR)

 Subject:  Healthcare provision for UK citizens in the EU post-Brexit
 Answer in writing 

I have been contacted by UK citizens currently living in other EU Member States who are concerned about healthcare provision post-Brexit.

One gentleman living in France is suffering from cancer, and has so far received excellent treatment under the French healthcare system, of which he has become a member by virtue of continued extended benefits from the British social security system, of which he was a fully paid member for many years.

— What will happen to this gentleman’s cancer treatment (and to the treatment of countless other UK citizens) after the UK leaves the EU?

— Can the Commission confirm whether these individuals’ existing entitlements will continue, or whether their entitlements will change?
