7 January 2020 — Migrants Organise
From all of us at Migrants Organise, we wish you a very Happy New Year. We are going to have a busy 2020, and wanted to update you about some of our campaigns…
Last year, one of our members, Simba, suffered a stroke that left him in a coma and paralysed on his left side. When he woke up, Sheffield Teaching Hospital presented him with a bill for £93,000 for the life saving treatment he had been given. He already had a bill of about £7,000 before the stroke. Simba has lived in the UK for most of his life, but because of his immigration status he is being charged for NHS care.
