Letter to the Sheffield Star
It’s hypocritical of local Labour and Lib-Dem politicians to criticise One Medicare for charging patients with whiplash injuries. (Star 17 July).
The privately run walk-in centre was created by the last Labour government in 2009 and supported by the then Lib Dem-led Council. The law allows hospitals and private doctors to charge the driver for treating victims of road traffic accidents and it is not surprising that a profit-driven company will take advantage of this.
