Finally it has reached the point where the British taxpayer that has been funding the NHS is denied of a bed,because of the many illegal immagrants and the Health tourist from other countries that doesn't put a penny to the fund has now swamped the places and denied the taxpayers rights to a bed.
Good old new labour the exterminator are once again providing for the scroungers and abandoning the decent.

I was listening to this story this morning. I heard she needed very specialised treatment for a very rare condition where the blood is oxygenated outside the body. There are 5 beds for this and all were full. I think it's great that she was able to be cared for else where and we can share the resources of another country.

It's got nothing to do with immigrants or health tourists Bob. It's because she needed specific specialist treatment.

It's fortunate that we have reciprocal arrangements with other countries to deal with this as and when needed.

My wife works at Crosshouse Hospital, Kilmarnock, where this girl was initially taken.
My understanding is, that her condition was deteriorating rapidly, and she was very poorly.
Without this specialist treatment, the girl would not have survived for much longer, so the ability to make use of the Swedish facilities was literally a "life-saver" for her.
One of the positive and beneficial aspects of greater European intigration - well, I knew there had to be at least some!!

Bob, her condition was extremely rare and just happened to coincide with the English specialist bed unit being full.
Bad luck - that's all!
