Britain’s NHS will be free to turn away homophobic patients

Britain’s National Health Service can refuse to treat people who are homophobic, racist or sexist from April. The UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock wrote to all NHS staff yesterday to announce the new rules.

They allow staff to turn away non-emergency patients. They can already refuse to treat non-critical patients who threaten them or physically attack them.
