Tough choice? Not really... Taxpayer funding for long term treatment of foreign patients VS surgery for a UK citizen.

I saw two stories about medical treatment in the UK today:-

Free (NHS - so taxpayer funded) treatment to foreign nationals in the UK - at a cost of around £18,000 per year each.



A Sussex family trying having raised £15,000 need a further £10,000 for an operation to let their disabled son walk.


While there are UK citizens having to pay for treatment, there is no case for taxpayers to fund treatment for chronic (long term) conditions for non-citizens - the choice here is simple.
