Nasar Ullah Khan is lying in a hospital bed in Birmingham. He is 38 and has weeks, if not days, left to live. Khan, a Pakistani national who came to the UK nine years ago and overstayed his visa, was refused a lifesaving heart transplant just before Christmas because of his ineligibility for free healthcare. Now he’s been told that he will be charged before he can receive end-of-life care. He was handed his first invoice for £16,000 on New Year’s Eve, days after he was told he would probably die within a month. The payment for hospital treatment already received is due at the end of January.

“It’s completely gut-wrenching,” says Elizabeth Bates, a Birmingham GP who is working with Doctors of the World. “Knowing that he’s been handed bills in his hospital room after he’s been given a dreadful diagnosis … I cannot understand what the philosophy of the people running the hospital is and how they expect that to impact on the clinical staff and on the patient sitting in front of them.” Bates, who has been helping Khan, says refusing to help care for him while he is dying is especially unfeeling. “Everybody is appalled that he might be charged for palliative care. It goes against every professional ethic and our Hippocratic oath. We should be treating people according to need.”
