  • 'The proposals will create structures that encourage a discriminatory approach towards certain groups' (Royal College of General Practitioners)
  • 'If there are migrants in A&E, they are more likely to be working there as doctors and nurses than using the services (30-40% of doctors and nurses are currently born outside of the UK).' (Still Human Still Here)
