Downing Street today ordered an urgent investigation into ‘completely unacceptable’ revelations that foreigners are billing the NHS for expensive healthcare they receive in their own country.
Under an extraordinary legal loophole, migrants are able to charge the full cost of medical treatment in their home countries to the UK, even if they have never paid a penny of tax in Britain, a Daily Mail investigation has revealed.
They do this by obtaining European Health Insurance Cards from the NHS, which are intended for British people to use in cases of emergency while on holiday in Europe.
The cards entitle them to charge the NHS for the cost of any medical treatment they might urgently need while overseas within Europe.
But the NHS is handing out more than five million of these EHIC cards for free every year – and keeping no record of how many are being given to foreigners.
The cards are given out freely to any EU citizens who says they are living in the UK, even if they haven’t actually worked or paid any tax here.
As a result, Eastern Europeans can obtain the cards, then return to their home countries and use them to have medical treatment they would usually have to pay for funded by the NHS.

It’s not only foreigners who are laughing at soft touch Britain, it’s the xenophile Establishment politicians who want us to remain in the EU as well. They created this mess, remember. This is what their supporters voted for.
No wonder our elderly English folk who need life-saving operations, or other costly NHS treatments, are told they cannot have them – the budget has been spent on freebies for foreigners who are not entitled. And the Anglophobic aliens of the political Establishment want us English to become a persecuted minority and die out as a nationality in any case.
But we are not going to oblige them. As Enoch Powell said, it’s never too late to save your country.
Join us in the fight for freedom!
