Default NHS Surcharge

This was still on the BBC website an hour ago.

The government has defended charging overseas health workers to use the NHS, despite criticism from its own party.
The health immigration surcharge on non-EU migrants is £400 per year and set to rise to £624 in October.


Delighted to see it Removed.

That does not seem fair if they are working here. Does it depend on how long they have been here?

Don’t existing NHS workers from overseas qualify for it to be refunded? I heard it’s only new arrivals that won’t.

Just 24 hours before his climbdown, Mr Johnson told the House of Commons that imposing the immigration health surcharge on foreign-born NHS workers was “the right way forward”.

Simple solution really, get British people to do the job then we might be able to understand them. I go to Bedford hospital to visit my aunt who's in the final stages of cancer and the wards are like yarl's wood immigration centre

There should be a charge (at least cost) for all the retards that commit crime and injure themselves (and others) in the process!

I'm sure that would recover a much larger sum from the right place. Only my opinion.

I think you will find that without the 'immigrant workforce' The NHS would be in a worse state than its in now.

I don't care what creed or colour is staffing the NHS, I'm just thankful that they have chose to come to the UK to do their job.
