S1 form - not for the hard of hearing

S1 form - not for the hard of hearing

Postby Jonnno » Fri Jul 31, 2020 6:15 pm

Today my wife applied for her S1 on the phone. She is slightly hard of hearing.

The experience was unpleasant. We told the man on the phone she was hard of hearing and asked 3 or 4 times if I could give the information needed.

No was the answer every time!I found that response surprising given there is supposed to be extra help for those suffering some kind of disability.

Bearing in mind telephone is the only way of applying for S1 I would have expected more help and sympathy.

Recently my husband had to phone the pension section and when he said he was hard of hearing the lady on the other side was able to do something at her end to turn up the volume. There also wasn't a problem with me taking over the conversation. Usually they are happy for someone else to take over the call once they have the consent from the client. Strange the way offices differ.

I take it you're not from UK, then. Irish citizens can apply on line but UK citizens only by phone.

Dear Andrew James Wyatt

Please accept this email as confirmation that an S1 certificate of entitlement has been sent to your overseas address. You will also receive information about how to register your S1 with the local authorities.

We would advise you to obtain private medical insurance to help with the cost of any treatment you may need before your S1 is registered. Please do not wait until you need treatment as you may be charged costs that cannot be refunded.

If your circumstances change it is important that you let us know. The information we’ve sent you with your S1 gives more detail about this.

Please do not reply directly to this email. The mailbox is not monitored and you will not receive a response.

If you do not receive your S1 within 15 working days of this email, or if you have any queries, please email [email protected] or call +44191 218 1999.

Yours sincerely

Overseas Healthcare Services

The S1 process was transferred from the DWP to NHS Business Services Authority at the end of last year - this is the email my wife received in response to her query:
