A female doctor has claimed German hospitals are struggling to deal with the number of refugees
In a furious outburst the experienced doctor said hospitals simply cannot cope because so many of the migrants require treatments for diseases long since eradicated in Europe.
She also shockingly claimed migrant parents are abandoning their children at pharmacies across the country after being told that they have to pay a prescription charge for lifesaving drugs.

Meanwhile, German authorities have been forced to post police at hospitals around the country after others got involved in angry clashes with medics over cultural differences.
The doctor, who wished to remain anonymous, wrote to the press back home in the Czech Republic to express her shock at the “unsustainable” situation which she says is now affecting the medical care received by taxpaying Germans.
She said: “Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.
A doctor claimed the German health service has been completely overwhelmed by refugees
“Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.
“Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them.
“If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash.
“This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children.
“They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words: ‘So, cure them here yourselves!’ So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.”

She said that the estimated 1.3million migrants who have entered the country are “completely unemployable” because they do not speak the language.
And she added that the burden on the country’s failing health service will only get worse because at least one in ten of the women arriving are pregnant.
She said: “Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meets young men in the hallways who just wait with their hand outstretched, want everything for free, and when they don’t get it they throw a fit.
“For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day – this is just a question of time.”

She said: “The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany.
“The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.
“The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email.
“What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife?
In a scathing attack she also savaged aid workers who turned out with ‘Refugees Welcome’ banners to provide food and clothes to migrants crossing the German border, accusing them of profiteering from the crisis.
She said: “If it were up to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s emergency ward, as attendants.
“Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria, and without medical help.”
However, A World Health Organization (WHO) spokesman refuted claims that German hospitals were struggling to cope with the number of refugees.
He said: “No country which is receiving refugees has come to the WHO for assistance or to ask for backup. They have been telling us that their systems are coping with this and all is fine.
“WHO is carefully monitoring the situation and is on hand to provide assistance when required.”
The WHO spokesman also said there were some concerns about cholera coming to the West from Iraqi and Syrian refugees, particularly because in 80 per cent of cases it does not show symptoms, but that in a normal, Western city, cholera would not be a big problem because cholera spreads through the water system and Western cities have safe supplies with sewage and drinking water pipes completely separate.
