SDLP South Down Westminster candidate, Cllr Michael Savage has slammed recent comments from Matt Hancock, Conservative Health Minister, regarding an NHS surcharge to all non-UK residents.

Our doctors, nurses and other health professionals do not want to police their patients and play border patrols. They want to care for them.”
