Headline

Government U-turn on charging migrants for GP appointments

Comment

Please be advised an NHS number means nothing. the immigrant mentioned above who has an illegal status with the home office, has a NHS number supplied by the hospital and could be used anyway or in a different hospital and was used in a choose and book referral for secondary care. Recovery of costs is near impossible and impractical. A headache that is not worth it with all the workload GPs already have.
