Raoul Li-Everington, 27, a junior doctor working for the NHS in north London, said the health service was in “decline” due to “austerity” policies.

“It’s clear to me that the next step is for the Americans to start investing in the NHS, buying up the NHS,” he said.

“That only leads to universal coverage not existing anymore,” he added.

“People will have poorer care and we will inherit a lot of America’s health problems in terms of their system.

Desiree Cranenburgh, 62, from Hammersmith in London and a former NHS employee in its pharmacy department, said: “I don’t think we can trust Trump and Boris Johnson on not doing some sort of a deal, it’s big business (for) the pharmaceutical companies.”
