App for Doctors: Do I Treat This Immigrant?

Saturday 11th May 2013 (6:30PM)

I've just built (in all of 20 minutes) a helpful cross-platform website that automatically detects if a doctor in the UK should treat an immigrant asking for treatment. It's a fully responsive HTML5 application that works with *all* devices that connect to the web (although it's untested on IE6).

The BBC reports that, "Migrants' access to the NHS would be restricted" after the Queen's speech of 8th May 2013. Jeremy Hunt, health secretary, has identified that immigrants are clogging up UK hospitals.

Obviously, this application can't come soon enough:

The source code can be found here (pull requests welcome!):

For the "BIG DATA" people, there's even a RESTful API: JSON or XML.
