GP leaders vote in favour of charging overseas patients

Comment

I find it hard to believe this even needs passing as a motion. If the patient is not registered with you and not eligible for UK health care ie you're not being paid to see them then surely its a no brainer that you would charge them. If you want to that is. If you don't then that's up to you. Why do we need this motion. If your an independent contractor cant you do what you want. Its nothing to do with your contract surely?
