MP Gareth Johnson supports NHS audit Bill

PUBLISHED: 16:57 24 October 2012

Dartford MP Gareth Johnson is supporting a Bill that would make foreign patients pay for treatment in UK hospitals.

Gareth said: “It is simply not fair that we pay for medical treatment abroad if we become ill but when people come to the UK and fall ill that the British taxpayer picks up the bill.”

The Bill will receive a second reading in Parliament on March 1.
