The EHIC card allows access to state provided healthcare and will cover treatment which is necessary during your time in the UK. The UKCISA website has guidance relating to comprehensive sickness insurance for EEA & Swiss students. EEA & Swiss students can make an appointment at an NHS doctor’s surgery - see the NHS choices website for further information. You will still need valid travel insurance - the EHIC is not an alternative to this coverage.
