A nurse who devoted 40 years of her life to the NHS was refused a free cancer scan because she volunteered to help terminally-ill patients abroad - for just three months.

Cancer nurse Ann Read, 66, became illegible for free care after she retired last year and volunteered to work with terminally ill patients in the Amazon rainforest.

She returned home in December following a cancer scare but was stunned when bosses at the Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge, branded her a health tourist and tried to charge her 900.

perhaps The Dutch government lets you have treatment after you've paid your taxes as opposed to the Uk government that will let every Tom dick and harry claim apart from those who have contributed

I was told today by someone who still has her buisness in the UK. You are unemployable and you wont get a penny by signing on. Dont even try to sign on with a GP. No hope then which i do feel sad about OK I get my pension but i always thought they would take care of thier own. Now If I go back it will be as an immigrant x

lilli I'm still in the UK but its wrong

You've served your time paid your dues

and if drawing a pension probably paying UK tax

and they say F

also just watching a programme and if you draw your state pension abroad they fix the exchange rate at the date you draw it at least for Australia

The waiting period to receive help used to bed 6 months. Maybe it hasn't changed, but how the heck you wait 6 months in U.K if you do not have money to live on, I don't know. But at least it is something.



Sadly, youneed to change your nationality to Iraqi and land with 10 kids and the world is your oyster.
