How many of us were aware that the European Health Insurance Card we were issued with which replaced the Form E111 has like driving licences, a finite life?
While taking a few idle moments to check out documents for our trip to France, I noticed that Gillian's and mine had expired.
The card can be renewed on line at www.dh.gov.uk/travellers by following the step by step instructions. You will need your old EHIC, your National Insurance No. and the PIN off the card (on the same line as your date of birth). There is a facility to renew your partner or spouse's card at the same time. The website and telephone number are on the back of the card. Just fill in the form, make doubly sure that the details are correct and hit the "send" button.
After hitting the "send" button, an automated confirmation will be received within seconds.
Roy Thanks for the reminder, I am terrible for remembering those sort of things. Luckily ours is not due for renewal till October next year. Would you be kind enough to bring it up again in July 2010. ;D ;D
