Fighting for a fair deal for Cornwall

Fighting for a fair deal for Cornwall

As Member of Parliament for North Cornwall, I am proud to represent the community I grew up in. I still live here, and I’m now raising my own family in Bodmin, with my wife, Heidi.

This website allows people to observe my work both in Parliament and in all the different parts of North Cornwall. The constituency has sixty five parishes and I try to get to all of them regularly, to meet residents, and to listen to their concerns, so I can raise the issues that matter to people here when I speak up for us in Westminster.

Representing the people of North Cornwall in Parliament is an honour and contact with my constituents is key. On this site you will find details of how to contact me in person, by email or by post. Please contact me if there are any issues that you would like me to pursue on your behalf.

- Dan Rogerson.

Pack your free Euro Health Card says Dan Rogerson MP

Pack your free Euro Health Card says Dan Rogerson MP

With school summer holidays coming up, North Cornwall Liberal Democrat MP Dan Rogerson is warning local residents about scam websites that charge for European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC) and reminding people they can get the card for free and don’t need to pay for it.

The EHIC is the free card that replaced the old E111 forms in 2004. The cards entitle people to free or significantly reduced charges for government run healthcare in any country in the European Union. However, unofficial websites will charge if you apply through them.

Dan has been campaigning against rogue and scam websites after several people contacted him because they had been charged for free government services like booking driving tests. Lib Dem Consumer Affairs Ministers are working with Google and other search engines to identify and close advertisements that are misleading, and have provided £120,000 in extra funding for the National Trading Standards Board.

Commenting, Dan said: “European Health Insurance Cards should be free of charge. If you are being asked to pay for your EHIC, you are not on the official website.

“The card could help significantly reduce the cost of basic medical treatment or prescriptions if you have an accident or fall ill on holiday. However, your EHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance, so when travelling within Europe, you need to have both.

“I would urge all those preparing for holidays to make an official application
at www.gov.uk/european-health-insurance-card or by calling: 0300 3301350, so you don’t pay out for something that’s free.”
