The NHS is falling hundreds of millions of pounds short in efforts to claw money back from so-called health tourists, a report has found. The Government aims to recover £500 million by 2018 - but it is estimated only £295 million is likely to be paid back by overseas patients not entitled to free treatment.
Half this amount is owed to acute and specialists trusts in London, the National Audit Office (NAO) said.
This morning, Dr Hilary Jones called on the UK to adopt similar methods to other countries that charge tourists per visit and revealed it's not health worker's job to ensure payments are made.
