Foreigners who come to the UK will face charges to access NHS treatment under new plans to ensure they "contribute towards the cost of their healthcare", the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is expected to announce today.
Ministers will outline plans to introduce a levy on any students or foreign workers who come to the UK for more than half a year.
The fee, which is likely to be around £200 a year, will be an addition to the visa charge, officials said.
Mr Hunt is expected to announce a public consultation on the move later today as part of a raft of changes to immigration laws.
