Those who served our country are being forced to pay for NHS care – John Healey

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, responding to reports of a British Army veteran being forced to pay £27,000 for NHS medical care, said:

“It’s shameful that those who have served our country are being forced to pay for NHS care.

“The Ministry of Defence must now urgently review how this happened, how many veterans are affected and report to Parliament with a plan to end this injustice.”
