UK: NHS to Deny Medical Care to 'Racist' or 'Sexist' Patients Under New Rules

Imagine being denied medical care at a hospital because you once made some politically incorrect tweets.

That's the future we're quickly moving towards.

From Sky News, "NHS staff can refuse to treat racist or sexist patients under new rules":
Sexist and racist patients could be barred from non-emergency care at NHS trusts, under new rules to be enforced from April.

Currently, staff can refuse to treat non-critical patients who are verbally aggressive or physically violent towards them.

But these protections will extend to any harassment, bullying or discrimination, including homophobic, sexist or racist remarks.
Note the seamless conflation of "racism" and "sexism" with physical assault:
"All assault and hate crimes against NHS staff must be investigated with care, compassion, diligence and commitment," [Health Secretary Matt Hancock] said.

These new rules were announced with the release of the 2019 NHS Staff Survey for England, which showed more than a quarter of NHS workers were bullied, harassed or abused in one year.
I wonder, does this apply to inborn racism and sexism?

We're told regularly that racism, antisemitism and sexism is "inherent in the European DNA," so theoretically that means they could just deny folks with "white privilege" medical care on the whole.

If it doesn't already, you can be sure it's coming.
