文字稿

The (UK) government said it would raise five hundred million pounds a year from treating overseas visitors on the NHS but it's falling well short so the pressure is on to get hospitals to do more checks to allow NHS bosses to claim back from foreign governments. A plan to get all patients to produce identification for non-urgent hospital care is being considered.

英国政府曾表示,向使用英国国民医疗保健系统(National Health Service, NHS)的海外访客收费可以给政府带来每年五亿英镑左右的收入,但到目前为止,收入远未能达到先前的预估,所以全英所有医院现面临进行更多病人身份核查的压力,从而来帮助英国国民医疗保健系统的高层领导们从其他国家政府索取该国访客在英期间使用此系统的相关费用。英国政府正在考虑实施一个除了急诊病人以外,所有看病的人都需出示身份证明的计划。

Flying over the Humber (river in the UK) and out to the North Sea, you soon get a sense of how the renewable energy boom is transforming the horizon and this area's economy.
