Discovering the culprit

A University of Oxford study from 2015 found that areas which high migrant populations tend to have lower NHS waiting times than comparable areas with lower migrant populations.
The researchers suggested that this is because migrants tend to be younger and healthier than older residents they displace. The study found that on average, for every 10 per cent increase in migrants living in a community, waiting times for outpatient services fell by nine days.
