NHS Number for Dependants

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by ArmyPaul, Nov 4, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me how I go about getting an NHS number for my new wife? She's German but we're serving overseas and nobody seems to know how I can get one apart from suggesting that we fly back to UK, pretend that we're living there and register with a clinic. She requires one for a job on the base.

    Does anybody know another solution?

    Cheers.
     
  2. Have you tried googling NHS Number. As I recall the department that used to issue them to individuals were based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, although as your wife is German is she entitled to one??

    How about the EHIC (or German equivalent)

    Or do you actually mean an NI Number for work?
     
  3. Smedley Hydro is the place to approach, as said, details should be on the Internet.
