Example of how to apply for help with paying for treatment:
If the lady has a HC2 then she should not have to pay. She can ask Migrant Help to help request that the Sct 95 team ask the NHS for one to be sent to her. I know this has been an issue in hotels though. If she is on Sct 98 or Sct 4 she will need to apply for one online, it will take about 5 – 7 days to arrive (a tip when using the online application, keep saying she has no support until the bit where it asks what she is living on, then type in UKVI Sct ninety eight support and then it gives the option to say Aspen card or vouchers) The online is much much quicker than applying by paper application.
