OK, so there\’s an EU Directive going through the works to insist that you can travel abroad to get health treatment, the NHS picking up the bill.
Some worry that this will mean Johnny Foreigner comes to the NHS for treatment:
A spokesman also insisted that the NHS would not suffer from an invasion of “health tourists” because the EU proposal states that if a particular service is being overloaded, the Government can apply for it to be omitted from the equal access scheme.
I don\’t think that\’s the reason, do you? Why would you leave your home country to get worse treatment abroad?
