GPs to conduct nationality checks in all new patients under health tourism crackdown


Every one of us knows this is inherently morally wrong and presents us with an irreconcilable conflict of interest. Someone will actually die very clearly and even then the GP will be blamed, not the government. RCGP should be standing up and unequiovally saying NO, nothing, else, no ifs and buts , just NO. Start a petition, or just actually refuse to do it.
