He's only voicing what everybody else is thinking! So great is our NHS system that the postcode lottery odds are getting even longer!! We struggle to help our own citizens get the treatment they desperately need - sometimes need to survive, but then the system lets people bring their relatives, friends etc knowing they are already sick into our country to put even more strain on a already strained system meaning people are to put it simply missing out on lifesaving treatment!

[SIZE=3]NICE!!!

[SIZE=2]Give me flack, give me all the flack you want but if any of what I said isnt true prove me otherwise and I will eat my toe clippings!

McLovin: nothing personal as if a system is open to abuse then people will take advantage, I would in your shoes, I blame the sytstem not those who take advantage of it.

Seconding to be honest.

No offence to McLovin either.

You shouldnt need a VISA as I think the maximum stay for a visitor is 6 months.

Yes we do dont we sassie.

I presume this refers to me??? It is an issue that has bugged me for a lomg while now so needed no thinking at all since my aunt died of cancer which if funding had been available for the correct drugs she would have stood a better chance of surviving which was around 75%+ as it was caught early enough for the drugs to have worked. But because we display a welcome flag to all and sundry the funds are not available due to the costs of treating highly infectious TB brought in by immigrants(both legal and illegal) a disease we had all but eradicated in this country. Thank you and goodnight.


well actually it wasnt purely aimed at you no, it was aimed to all of us that dont think before we post, had it been posted purely to you i would have happily quoted you:roll:

What i was referring to was how the hell do you know his aunt/uncle/grandmother whoever is not coming over here to see their grandchildren/neices/nephews whoevers one last time before returning home to die, no you dont you know have just assumed, the same as you assumed my post was purely aimed at you, i was just saying sometimes we dont think before we post

Maybe so but has he has already stated she is seriously ill, it would surely be better for all the family to visit the relative? If she is as ill as that then the flight would be undoable from a health view, and quite a few airlines would refuse to take someone so ill on board without an appropiate medical team.

According to the government Visa site ( http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/ ) your relative does need a Visa to come to the UK. You should check the site out for yoursef though to double check what I am saying and to get details of how they can obtain a Visa.

As others have said, depending on her health problems, some airlines may not allow your relative to fly, so you will also need to check that out too.

This isn't aimed at you Mclovin as you have said nothing about your relative needing treatment whilst in the UK, but to those going on about it, I've pasted below what the official line is regarding Visas and medical treatment.

Good luck Mclovin - best wishes to you and your relative. :)


Taken from here:

Can I get medical treatment in the UK?
You can apply for a visit visa to travel to the UK for private medical treatment. You must be able to show that you:
- have made suitable arrangements for the necessary private consultation or treatment
- have enough money to pay for the treatment
- have enough money to support yourself and live without working or getting any help from public funds while you are in the UK, and
- intend to leave the UK at the end of your treatment.

We may also ask you to provide the following.
- A doctor’s letter giving details of your medical condition and the treatment you need.
- Confirmation that you have made suitable arrangements for the private consultation or treatment and how long the treatment will last.
- Evidence that you can afford to pay for the consultation and treatment. We may also ask you to give an undertaking (in other words, a formal agreement) that you will pay for the consultation and treatment.

Can I stay more than six months for medical treatment?[b]
If you need to stay longer than six months to complete your medical treatment you can apply to the Border and Immigration Agency. The Border and Immigration Agency will charge a non-refundable fee for any extension application.

[b]You are not allowed to enter or stay in the UK to receive treatment on the National Health Service (NHS). You must make sure that you have enough medical insurance for the whole of your stay.

She would need a visitor's visa and they wouldn't give one to a seriously ill person.

That's if you want to live there, not if you just want to visit for a few weeks.

when i said iw as bringing her to england i didnt mean to SPONGE off your NHS. it could most probably be the last time i ever see her again so we wanted to see her for a few weeks as she lives on her own in serbia with no one else. Were getting her private care in serbia. so pretty much a big old **** you to all of your negative comments. i dont need your ****. i have enough stress at the moment as it is without you complete douche bags trying to judge me for something i havent even done. anyway last time i checked two of my parents are in the NHS and i pay my bills so even if i did want to Sponge of the NHS- which i never said i wanted to- i would have more of a ****in right then alot of you ******s.

rant over. ill be away for abit, really cant believe some of you guys.
