Millions of pounds given in health care each year to those ineligible to receive it, robbing the elderly of social care which is much needed and for many who require medical/surgical care in this country. The NHS budget is not finite, so we really must devise a system that prevents those who have never ever contributed from taking health resources needed by English citizens.
Those from overseas who have taken health care and failed to pay for it should be exempt from ever returning to the UK. A system has to be put in place that enables this.
It is also necessary that a system is put in place where no-one entering his country can take advantage of our health care system without having adequate means to reimburse us.
The Government desperately need to put in place sufficient staff to oversee and vet overseas visitors at the point of entry to the UK. Subsequent to point of entry without proof of adequate insurance/funding, we have no hope of ever recuperating the massive unpaid funds involved.
When it gets to the point of clinicians, most will over-ride NHS eligibility and err on the side of caution saying the patient requires treatment or they will suffer harm. It should never ever reach that point.
