The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt, MP, Secretary of State for Health Department of Health 79 Whitehall London SW1A 2NS
Open Letter: Withdraw The National Health Service (Charges to Overseas Visitors) (Amendment) Regulations 2017
9 October, 2017 Dear Secretary of State for Health,
We, the undersigned, write to you to protest The National Health Service (Charges to Overseas Visitors) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 that have been laid before parliament, and are due to be implemented without debate.
We are concerned that these regulations have been laid without evaluation of their impact on health outcomes and health inequalities, without a full and robust assessment of the long-term costs to the NHS, and before the completion and evaluation of pilots on patient identity checks in hospitals. Moreover, up-front charging has not been subject to any public consultation.
As organisations and individuals working with people who will be affected by the amendments, or with broader interests in equality and the future of the NHS, there are many matters which concern us.
Firstly, we are concerned about the impact of up-front charging and the need to present paperwork proving eligibility for free care on vulnerable people who are entitled to free care but who may not have easy access to paperwork and passports, such as homeless people, elderly people, those living with mental health conditions and people seeking asylum. With the regulations requiring NHS funded charities and organisations to also check paperwork and charge patients, these individuals are likely to be deterred from accessing those services that are specifically commissioned to reach marginalised communities, leading to untreated health conditions and increased use of accident and emergency services.
There is also the risk of racial profiling being used as a means to identify chargeable patients, leading to an increase in health inequalities (a breach of the Secretary of State for Health’s duty to reduce health inequalities under the Health and Social Care Act 2012). The only way to check eligibility for free NHS services which does not contravene equality law is to check everyone. Reviewing every patient’s immigration status will be time consuming, costly to administer and frustrating for both patients and NHS staff. It is also difficult to see how repeat eligibility checks can be avoided as service providers will have to ensure that a patient’s residency status in the UK has not changed over time.
As ID checks are carried out on all patients in advance of appointments, and medical professionals are tasked with judging whether treatment is urgent or immediately necessary, patient waiting times are likely to increase, putting the NHS under even greater strain.
We are also concerned these regulations run the strong risk that healthcare, including lifesaving care, will be withheld from those unable to prove their entitlement to free NHS treatment or able to pay up-front. We are already beginning to see patients living in the UK being wrongly denied lifesaving care such as urgent surgery or cancer treatment because they cannot pay.
The public health implications have also not been fully considered. We are concerned by the risk these regulations pose in undermining the crucial public health role of community services, in particular public mental health services and drug and alcohol treatment services, which protect us all.
Further, we are concerned that these measures will cost the NHS more money. The Government has not carried out a full and robust assessment of the impact and cost of the new charging regime. We believe the bureaucratic burden on community services has been significantly underestimated. Department of Health estimates the cost to each
community provider to be £13.64 per year, but this fails to properly take into consideration additional administrative time to check paperwork. In addition, the longer-term costs of the regulations have not been factored into cost calculations. Confusion over who is entitled to free care will deter patients from seeking medical advice at an early stage, leading to late diagnosis amongst groups most at risk. As well as causing needless human suffering, this will lead to mounting costs for the NHS as conditions become more complex and difficult to treat and there is a greater reliance on emergency services.
By denying healthcare to the most vulnerable in our society, these regulations will have negative consequences for us all.
These amendments, subject to negative procedure, are due to come into force on 5 November 20171. We demand that you withdraw the regulations.
We also call on the government to carry out and make public the results of an assessment of the impact of extending charges into community services on vulnerable groups, pregnant women and children; an assessment of the impact of up-front charging and checking patient paperwork on access to services, health outcomes and patient waiting times, including an evaluation of the ongoing pilots taking place in hospital trusts; an impact assessment evidencing the proposed regulations do not breach the Secretary of State for Health’s duty to reduce health inequalities under the Health and Social Care Act 2012; a human rights impact assessment on up-front charging; and a public consultation on the parts of the regulations not included in the 2016 consultation on NHS cost recovery: up-front charging and recording a patient’s eligibility status against their NHS number.
We have attached briefings by Doctors of the World UK, the National AIDS Trust, Immigration Law Practitioners Association and Asylum Matters, which outline these concerns and recommendations in greater detail. We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible (contact us via Anna Miller, UK Policy and Advocacy Manager, Doctors of the Word: email@example.com).
Postscript: (From Doctors of the World, the National AIDS Trust, Asylum Matters and Freedom from Torture only) Doctors of the World have sought clarity from Department of Health regarding the scope of community services - including Public Health Services commissioned through Local Authorities - that will be affected by the amended regulations. To date Department of Health have been unable to provide further clarity.)
