Health tourism: Cui bono?

Professor Meirion Thomas exposes rife health-tourism in the NHS and almost, but not quite, points to vested interests.

As always, cui bono?

It seems to me that pharmaceutical companies and the like, stand to gain the most from this:  unlimited business, paid for by the taxpayer, who is not in a position to say no.

So who facilitates this practice, if not the civil service?  Isn’t it time an audit was done on civil service vested interests?  How many are in the pay – directly or indirectly – of those who stand to gain the most?

But I’m sure he knows that already.  It is a brave man who takes on the pharmaceutical companies.
