Cancer surgery for legitimate patients is being canceled every week to make way for health tourists scamming the NHS.
One of Britains most senior surgeons has condemned having to put bogus patients before those entitled to cancer care in a creaking health service. Professor J. Meirion Thomas has called on ministers to introduce a NHS passport to combat the abuse.
It is so easy to breach the system. It is awful for me as a doctor to have to treat someone I know is ineligible, he said.
Under NHS rules, any patient urgently referred by a GP for cancer surgery must receive treatment within 62 days. Professor Thomas said bogus patients about to breach the 62-day rule leapfrogged legitimate sufferers awaiting surgery.

Hate to say this, but wait til the medicaid set discovers they are behind the “illegals” in the health care line. Coming soon to health care systems nationwide.

See what moral grotesqueness people are capable of when a ‘just and fair’ health system is shoved down everyone’s throat..
Thinning the herd you voted for it you got it! If you think this is not going to rear its ugly head here, just wait! Go to the back of the line white America, illegals, ethnic groups, young abusers of narcotics, mentally unsatble and your politicians and thier families are all in front of you and by the way if you dont pay your high medical premium this month we will empty your bank account and if you continue to resist we will confiscate your valuables and property and jail you
This is from bribes, clearly. The referring doc is taking money to push illegal aliens to the top of the list. It can happen in the UK now, but you’d have to re-staff all of the US physicians to get this to happen here. However, you can empower NPs and Pas to man these lists, and put it into place. Then nurses can take bribes to push patients to the top of the list. Hah.
Wouldn't surgery that late be considered embalming?!
Treating a NHS patient: half the money, after you fill out a buttload of forms and wait for months/years. The patient will complain incessantly about the quality of care, and probably end up suing you eventually.
Coming soon to a theatre near you...
