Im­mi­gra­tion pol­icy is big­ger NHS is­sue

Coventry Telegraph - - LETTERS -

‘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
