So if you go to A&E, you have to be registered or they wont treat you,is that what you are saying.?

I am actually not sure with A&E

I think you may have to fill in a form. Even if not I suspect illegal immigrants may steer clear for fear.

I wouldn't think A&E is the biggest area of cost for the NHS though

It's more about being in a hollow metal tube that's traveling at 500 mph....I have to be cajoled to get on those things.

I prefer cruises or UK holidays.....which have the downside of being more expensive of course.

What happens at A&E?
A&E departments offer access 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A&E staff include paramedics, A&E nurses, diagnostic radiographers, A&E reception staff, porters, healthcare assistants and emergency medicine doctors. Medical staff are highly trained in all aspects of emergency medicine.

1. Register
If you arrive by ambulance, the ambulance crew will provide the relevant details to reception and hand you over to the clinical staff. If you are seriously ill, the staff will already know because the ambulance crew will have alerted them on the way in.

If you're not in a life-threatening or serious condition, you will be prioritised by the A&E hospital team along with other patients waiting to be seen arriving by ambulance does not necessarily mean you will be seen sooner than if you had walked in to A&E.

If you go to A&E by yourself, you'll need to register first. You'll be asked a few questions such as name and address but also why you are visiting A&E. If you have been to the hospital before, the reception staff will also have access to your health records.

Once you've registered, you'll be asked to wait until you are called for your assessment.

I would be very interested to see a link for your statement. Having worked in Immigration/ Border Force for over 40 years I never came across this, my wife still works for BF and is not aware of this, of course you may know better. It is true that foreign nationals who owe money for healthcare received in the UK ( for which they are not entitled) are put on a watch list, should they return or apply for a visa. Not registering ( Iif this is true) is not the same as accessing the NHS. I have seen many examples of NHS abuse, running into hundreds of thousands of pounds. Of course if you are happy with this ( maybe one of the reasons for long waiting times and lack of money) that is your prerogative
