MY Sister was born in England and worked here from the age of 15 until about 40 years old and then moved to South Africa. She is now 65 and receives her OAP at a reduced rate as she did not have the full amount of stamps. She travelled to England this May and required Hospital treatment. Now back in South Africa she has received a bill from the NHS for £3165 for her NHS treatment. Is this correct? That she should be asked to pay for her treatment? I want to add that my Sister was taken from the plane by Para Medics as her condition was an emergency. She then spent 5 days in Hospital and was only allowed to return to SA 3 weeks later. The reason I say this is because I think they have different rules when treating an emergency and could well be a grey area. Thanks Jerry Stevenson
