Under Gibraltar legislation, there are two classes of persons entitled to be registered under the GPMS: firstly insured persons by virtue of section 4(1) of the Medical GPMS Act and their dependants by virtue of section 3 of the GPMS Act; and, secondly, persons who are “ordinarily resident” in Gibraltar pursuant to section 4(2) of the GPMS Act. (www.gibraltar.gov.gi) Laws of Gibraltar.

The scheme allows entitled persons and their dependents to access health care at no charge.

Medicines are available at a cost of £2.50 per item on the prescription subject to a maximum charge of £7.50. Dental treatment is only available to children. Adults may be seen for emergency treatment only.
