You realize your "news" is actually from 2008?

No I didn't.  I checked the date on top of the Daily Mail page and it read today's date.  Thank goodness for that!

 

How could you tell?

If you enter inurl: before a www address of an article it often tells you the date it was published or if not then try adding &as_qdr=y15 to the end.

when it gets to $5000 will they put it up to $10000? seems to be a common progression. It will be interesting to see how it all works out

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.

When the chemo kicked in I don't think even 'hello people Kev in Thailand here' would feel like getting the camera out

Regarding entitlement to NHS:  I'm sure it's right. Sorry the link didn't work.  The key phrase is the 'Shah ruling' which established that anyone returning to UK to live is entitled from day one. I'm not saying there won't be hoops to jump through in some cases.  Ultimately, though the NHS won't have a leg to stand on.

 

Here it is the PDF file again: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/factsheets/fs25_returning_from_abroad_fcs.pdf

Which is what I said right ? 

 

But if you're returning to no permanent abode you're not going to get it - that was my point as in many people were saying why doesn't the guy just go back. That ship has sailed now.

It's an 

Nothing to do with property.  The circumstances of coming home to live are self evident. Put it this way, who has been refused treatment? Anyway, treatment would not be refused I think. What could happen is that one might be billed, but this would undoubtedly be cancelled later. when it proves that you are there permanently.  Bottom line is a resident is entitled to NHS care under the 'Shah ruling'.  

 

There is a lot of misinformation on the net, and people get confused between doctor's surgery rules, NHS entitlement, and eligibility for social services.

 

I guess the uncomfortable truth is that many of us should really return to the UK as soon as possible, before something happens.  It's something I am reluctantly considering.

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.
