“travelled back with NHS patients who had gone abroad to countries like India and Pakistan for treatments”

So the UK’s socialist healthcare makes people go to the third world for treatments, and then they want to blame those people!

Here’s a thought - build a private healthcare system that people WANT to use, then they won’t go to the third world!

No, it doesn't - though you might be forgiven for thinking so from the clumsy writing here. Cosmetic surgery has never been provided by the NHS. It is, however, widely available privately in Britain. These people are presumably travelling back to their countries of origin for cosmetic surgery simply because it's cheaper to do so.
