Of course there are people who choose to do so and takeup a bed and the time of hardpressed surgeons which couldhave been used to cure or save the life of someone who has also paid into the system all their life but chosen to live in the UK permanently rather than opt for a life in the sun, and return to the uk for treatment happy to play the " I am entitled to it more than a foreigner " card. The bottom line is they are not entitled to it and two wrongs dont make a right.

As for taking up a bed . This Conservative privatist mob has forced through draconian cut after cut that has seen wards close , hospitals close , alongside serious staff cuts , this is the cause of the " bed takeup problem "

Not enough wall and too much to paint.

The deal was for full stamp that health and pension would be taken care of. Forty six years later , of full conribution i expect the deal to be honoured. Not my responsibility to ring fence the money we all paid in whilst successive governments wasted the funds.

Re: Another nail in the coffin

Have you heard the one about the elderly American man with dementia ?? No, it's not a joke unfortunately but true according to BBC news on Monday. The old man was flown over to the U.K.by his wife and his son and dumped in Herefordshire, of all places. He was found, of course, but they could not discover who he was, even after DNA tests. Eventually the case was on the T.V. (Panorama, I think) when it was discovered that he was from America and it turns out that his family had brought him to U.K. to avoid medical fees for him. Who do you think paid for all his care for the past year or so ??
This sort of thing goes on in the States it's called "granny dumping" to avoid fees etc. You couldn't make it up !! ( by the way, I still think people who have paid in fully should be entitled to NHS care over and about those who come from abroad to abuse our system)

Re: Another nail in the coffin

someone is trying to arrange on line for people to donate money 10000 to bring him back to england as they don't like his treatment at the us care home.
The mind boggles he is american he has family (who do not want him). How much care can you get for 10000 what happens when this money has gone, which mugs will be paying for his care ?

I saw something about this the other day, Kibby.

Absolutely disgraceful, especially when our own are so much in need of very 'Basic' care
