English "health underclass"

Liberal Democrats are concerned about a "health underclass" being created by the requirement to produce an identity card when accessing non-emergency NHS treatments. They should only trouble themselves with the creation of an English "health underclass".

The Scottish Finance Minister has said ID cards would not be required to access NHS services in Scotland. I also understand the Welsh Assembly have voted against requiring ID cards to be used to access NHS services but have been unable to confirm it!

Will Northern Ireland need ID cards to access NHS treatments?

I heard the IRA will be in charge of determining who gets health care. They are quite experienced at filling hospital wards you know!
