Funny how prejudice can often not equate with reality. Department of Health research published in 2013:

"Of the 27 trusts that provided data, hospitals earned 194.6m from treating private patients in 2010/11.
On average a third of that income came from patients that weren't from the UK. Together, they generated approximately 220m for the UK economy.
In Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust, 97% of income from private patients was from those that weren't from the UK. In Birmingham Children's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, it was 88.3%.
The nine most common countries of origin for patients being treated in the UK (along with the approximate number of patients in 2010) were:

1. Ireland (13,000)
2. Cyprus (6,000)
3. Spain (5,000)
4. Greece (3,500)
5. Nigeria (3,250)
6. Kuwait (2,750)
7. Portugal (2,250)
8. France (1,750)
9. UAE (1,000)


In 2010, more UK residents were treated abroad than non-UK residents were treated in the UK. Those UK residents sought fertility treatments, cosmetic and bariatric (weight loss) surgery.
Between 2000 and 2010, over 100,000 UK residents sought treatment in France, Poland, India, Spain, Germany the US and, to a lesser extent, in dozens of other countries. Certain treatments are associated with specific destinations - for example "UK dental patients increasingly travel to Hungary and Poland, which corresponds to the varied availability of NHS dental treatment over the last decade".

As for the "2bn figure" (actually c.167 times less)that's been dealt with earlier in the thread.

As for "immigration controls" good to see a poster taking note of requests to confine such topics and requests to relevant threads.(Not as if the poster in question is obsessed with immigrants or anything like that,is it).

Unfortunately Nick it's the best my old computer can do, have you scrolled down? The general crux of it is the estimated 2billion that health tourism costs the NHS is a lie and that it actually costs a hell of a lot more. There was an article from the Guardian saying the same thing but I can't bring myself to attach that to my post.

What statistical evidence was there? and was it the piece that appeared in the clarifications and corrections section as being bull.

But FUE said what the Guardian wrote was correct (see above).Have the Commies "turned" him?;Is he no longer your trusted bedfellow on the quest for unbiased truth?Surely FUE doesn't post things as fact regardless of whether they are true or not?

The articles are the usual cuttlefish-ink trying to hide the enormity of the problem. As for it costing more to treat UK citizens in Europe - so what? Who cares? It is our NHS we should be concerned about.

At the end of the day health tourism costs the NHS a fortune, and that's the truth. Does this not even make you lefties angry? That people who have never even paid into the system are taking advantage of this, at your expense? Not even a hint of annoyment? Nothing? Not even a twinge of anger? No?
