Legislation sets out which individuals and companies are eligible to hold contracts to provide primary medical services. Eligibility varies slightly between contract type but there is no distinction in the eligibility criteria between companies registered in the United Kingdom and those registered overseas. All contract holders and providers of National Health Service core primary medical services are subject to the same requirements, regulation, and standards.
