There is a deliberate EU policy of running down public services and forcing taxpayers to line the pockets of private hospitals. I raised the issue of delays in processing applications and reimbursing payments under the cross-Border directive.

There is no point in setting up a scheme if it cannot be relied on. If a patient is told that he or she will be reimbursed within 30 days but must wait for 90 or 100, it causes major financial problems!
