Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said that the measures he will announce today are designed to "wipe out abuse in the system" by visitors to the UK.

We need to ensure that those residing or visiting the UK are contributing to the system in the same way as British taxpayers, and ensure we do as much as possible to target illegal migration.
We have been clear that we are a national health service not an international health service and I am determined to wipe out abuse in the system.
The NHS is a national treasure and we need to work with the entire health system to develop plans and make sure it is sustainable for years to come.
