  1. Hi, i've checking all my final bits and pieces for basic, and i don't have a NHS card, i have a EHIC but no NHS card, my dads says there the same thing, but i'm too sure, I'm gunna go and order one anyway tomorrow but if i don't turn up with one, will i get drop myself in it?
    Many thanks. :)
     
  2. No, they are not the same.

    The EHIC is the equivalet of the old Form E111 & gets you treatment in the EU (& some other European & Scandinavian states).

    The NHS card is different & shows your NHS Number. Try dropping in at your GP practice - they should be able to help.
     
  3. FYI, if you cant find it, your NHS number is the same number that is on your Birth Cert.
