GPs told to charge non-Britons for NHS services
Presumably a lot of doctors and nurses won't be able to access NHS care then ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/joepublic/2010/nov/10/nhs-health ). Policy-based evidence-making, once again.
I will not permit considerations of age, disease or disability, creed,
ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race, sexual
orientation, social standing or any other factor to intervene between my
duty and my patient; - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaration_of_Geneva

A reminder -
Support the right to family life!
On 9th July!
And keep lobbying your MPs to attend! A sample letter is here :
As your constituent, I am writing on behalf of the ‘Divided Families
Campaign’, a UK-wide campaign for highlighting the impact of the new
rules on family migration. I would like to invite you to a meeting in
Committee Room 10 of the House of Commons on Tuesday 9th July from 18:00
I have been separated from my spouse as a result of the income threshold
introduced in the new rules, which aims to make it more difficult to
sponsor spouses and partners, or elderly dependents, to come to the UK
from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). I believe these changes
are unfair and I would like for you to attend this meeting to hear how
it has impacted me and other like me from around the UK.
The meeting will be chaired by Baroness Ruth Lister. It will bring
together campaigners, supporters and parliamentarians to hear about the
impacts of the new rules. The meeting will welcome valuable public
servants including Maggie Atkinson, the Children's Commissioner for
England, and will be a chance for families to share their stories.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration recently launched a
report into the impact of the rules, a copy of which I am pleased to
attach. I would be very grateful on your thoughts on the findings of
If you cannot come to the meeting, I would also ask that you write to
the Home Secretary, and to the Immigration Minister, Mark Harper MP,
asking for an explanation of why policy has not changed as a result of
the APPG on Migration’s report published on 10 June this year.
Thank you very much for your time and I earnestly await your reply.
