Immigration policy is bigger NHS issue
‘PROJECT Fear’ raises its ugly head once more.
We are told by John Payne (Nov 6) that the elderly who voted Brexit will suffer the consequences of an exodus – or ‘Brexodus’ as he calls it – of foreign doctors and nurses. May I suggest that it is not the lack of medical personnel preventing this age group from receiving care, it is the crazy immigration policy of the EU. Many EU migrants living here pay their way, but unfortunately there are some who do not. If a commensurate amount of hospitals were built to deal with this influx of people, medical care would be easier to obtain.
Possibly the elderly of whom he speaks voted leave because they wanted the choice to limit the amount of people coming here, the freedom of our Government to spend our money as they wish, to trade with whom they wish and not to have our laws overruled by unelected officials from a foreign country. It’s not a lot to ask! Peter Surtees Bedworth
