To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to Answer of 27 May 2021 to Question 6486, how many refunds of the Immigration Health Surcharge have been received by health and social care workers following the Prime Minister's announcement on ending the charge for health and social care workers in May 2020.

Since the Prime Minister’s announcement, the Home Office has made thousands of refunds to eligible customers working in the health and care sector. This covers both refunds and reimbursements under the schemes operated by the Home Office and Department of Health and Social Care respectively. We continue to consider the best way to publish data on the health and care worker exemption.
