Immigrants sent to the front of the queue

can't speak English are being sent to the FRONT of NHS out-patient queues...while locals are left waiting in clinics for hours.

Patients who need interpreters are being given priority by hospital trusts—because bosses reckon it's cheaper than having costly translators hanging about.

The bosses are right. It probably is cheaper however that is no justification for giving them treatment before Brits. Unless it is essential immigrants should be refused any treatment unless they have the money to pay. I don’t see why those who have paid taxes all their lives should be sent to the back of the queue just so someone who hasn’t paid anything can get treated for something they can get treated for in their own country.
