Working as I do in IT for the NHS I predict that this will be the next big fiasco...
So, simple questions:
1 Do you really think that medical/administration staff will be given the right training/systems to enact this?
2 Should a hospital turn someone away, either with trauma or once they've been stabilised?
3 How much do you think it will cost to add 'charging' systems to the NHS?
4 Does this now mean we all have to carry ID?
5 When will the first person die, who was eligible, but who either didn't have the right documents or couldn't prove it enough for someone not really qualified to know?
Far easier if the Govt actually went after the Euro monies they were entitled to first.
