I do read and understand. I go back to the UK annually and have a check up. I also receive my prescription medication from the UK (arrived today). I have also had my cancer treated in the UK. All for free and as a cancer patient I was prioritised and seen and started treatment within days. Also my wife, daughter and son-in-law all work in the NHS. It's Burt who doesn't know how it works or, more likely, is spouting his usual BS.

 

Feel free to let him mug you off.

Your like a broken record, me, me, me.

Reserve that comment for Kevin Burt!

 

Just illustrating that I do know what I'm talking about and you and Burt are full of BS.

 

You accused me of not being able to read or understand. Now you know the truth. Not me, me, me, at all, just helping you to see through the BS. I'm good like that.

You clearly cannot understand that the article refers to potential delays for cancer patients in the NHS, just as you don`t seem to be able to grasp that Kev made the decision to pay for his own treatment regardless of whether like yourself he could illegally obtain treatment in the UK, those were his choices and his money. Of course that article does`t fit with your story of just being able to turn up and being guaranteed to receive immediate treatment just as his second hand car doesn`t quite fit in with your stated brand new vehicle. It`s funny watching you keep trying to make square pegs fit into round holes though, carry on.

This said, Kev has stated that he can pay for his treatment...he has the financial means to take care of himself.  He also claimed ignorance that a GoFundMe account had been set up in his name but was thankful for the account.  This to me seems odd; he can pay for medical treatment but will let others pay for it instead.  

 

 

 

I think even someone with money would not turn their nose up if someone wanted to give them more ;+) 

 

His first vdo predates the gofundme and in his second he mentions it and says thank you.

No one would be refused but you would be billed - we're going round in circles all agreeing with each other really.

 

However given my own GP told me how it is only about 6 months ago I know I've got that bit right. (You're also not entitled to sign up to a GP in your area - many if not most have got closed books now)

 

As for returning - why panic ? I would rather take my chances in a decent Thai hospital than an NHS one any day of the week!

No we're not exactly singing from the same hymn sheet- a similar one maybe.

 

But if you can provide a link to the new rule about 6 months then we would be.  

 

What gets me about the NHS, pretty much everyone lately, is that they are a law unto themselves. It could all boil down to which receptionist you speak with.

If I had cancer I'm not calling a 2 week wait for a referral and a further 1-2 months to start treatment as 'immediate' - and they're only targets !

 

Especially when the UK also have the worst cancer survival rates in Western Europe ?

The other thing is that if you are very sick its almost impossible to get on a plane.  When I had appendicitis, I was in no fit state to do anything other than stumble to a car.

 

The uncomfortable truth is that the best time to return to Blighty is before you get ill. Otherwise, be prepared to have your stack of cash wiped out.

This is exactly what I have been saying- I think you were merely removed from your doctor's register and have assumed that to mean that you can't use the NHS.  By the way, how on earth did it happen?

 

Returning to the UK after a period of time living away?

If you go anywhere abroad for more than three months, either for a one-off extended holiday for a few months or to live permanently for several years, but then return to the UK to take up permanent residence here again, then you will be entitled to receive free NHS hospital treatment from the day you return. So will your spouse, civil partner and children (under the age of 16, or 19 if in further education) if they are also living with you permanently in the UK again.

 

(By the way this was archived on 2011.)

Apart from the fact that you are likely to face delays returning to the UK that won`t even be an option of you are seriously hurt in a vehicle or any other accident or contract some fast acting debilitating virus etc Your bank will take a proper hammering, not being insured is a massive risk no matter how healthy or careful you are.

Yes, I can remember Burt producing a vlog in the same vein, some time ago, advising his subscribers to take out insurance. Pity he didn't follow his own advice, instead of relying on GoFundMe when it went tits up.

Well that`s true, but he`s not relying on GFM is he. He paid up front and someone else started a GFM that wont even cover a 10th of the cost. Good luck with your strategy, you better keep your fingers crossed everyday or better still follow some of the advice on here, if you can`t afford it go home, Kev can afford it for now. Good to know your a fan of his vlogs though, who would believe it!
