Will I be able to get medical care? Yes, Prisoners Abroad encourages all clients on their return to the UK to receive a full medical check-up where possible, especially if you have any previous or existing physical or mental health problems. If you have a medical condition which requires medication, you can obtain the prescribed medication for free if you are claiming benefits. Please ensure that you obtain past medical documents to help the GP diagnose your health problems and prescribe medication. It may take a few days to set up an appointment, so where possible try to bring two weeks' worth of medication with you to tide you over.
